Google’s first West Africa Director, Dr. Juliet Ehimuan, has announced her resignation.
She made the news on LinkedIn on Friday, expressing her desire to take on a larger role in the regional technological sector.
Before her appointment as Google’s West Africa Director, she served as the company’s Country Director for Nigeria.
During her tenure as Director, the Google team in Africa trained over 6 million Africans in digital skills, educated 100,000 engineers in web and mobile development, and established a Google for Startups accelerator specifically for African tech entrepreneurs.
“Furthermore, important access projects were completed under Ehimuan’s leadership, including the expansion of the Google Station program in Nigeria and the deployment of Google’s Equiano fibre cable, which spans from Portugal to South Africa, connecting Africa with Europe.” These initiatives have significantly improved internet accessibility and affordability for millions of people in Nigeria and beyond.”
“Her leadership in committees such as the National Economic Summit Group (NESG) and the Presidential Committee was responsible for developing the national broadband plan in 2019, which had a significant impact on shaping the region’s ICT strategy.”
