The Head of Marketing, West Africa Operations, LG, Hari Elluru, stated that presently, the company has a training Academy at the University of Lagos where students are trained on new technologies, adding that plans are ongoing to open one more training centre for the public in June.

He stated this on the sidelines of a three-day exhibition organised by Elan Expo in Lagos.

“We have already identified the space and by next month it will be open. We would be inviting students from the colleges to get trained and once they complete their courses, they can pick up jobs while also having experience with LG,” he said.

He added that LG is a leading brand with a strong presence in Nigeria, pointing out that the expo is a platform to showcase its innovative products which can cater to this market.

He said Nigeria remains the best place to invest because of its huge population with people preferring to buy new products and technologies.

Elluru said the company is getting the required support from the government and expects the same support in the coming years.

He stated that despite the harsh operating environment, LG is performing well, as the business is growing year on year.

“We are also trying to introduce a new technology for the Nigerian market before the year runs out. LG is worth over a $100 billion company and we spend a percentage of this revenue on research and development to improve the quality of our products,” he said.
