This was the position of the Chief Executive officer of Havilah Merchants Limited and Havilah Storage Limited, Mr Lanre Adesuyi at the product launch of Bruynzeel storage systems and solutions in Lagos.
According to Adesuyi, the failure of government and the citizens to keep and manage records is one of the reasons why the Nigerian cannot effectively develop in all spheres of it growth since independence.
“Nigerians need to effectively manage data and information. Some individuals do not even know how to keep personal records not to talk of accessing public records”, he said.
According to him, these problems and challenges are the core reasons why Havilah has taken up a mission to make information management and storage accessible to all.
“The need to proffer genuine solutions to this problem is why we decided to partner with Bruynzeel, the leading storage systems and solutions company in the world. Our partnership is strategic and that is why we are going to offer both private and public institutions the best in storage technology from Bruynzeel”
Adesuyi also confirmed that this is the first time that Bruynzeel is coming to this part of Africa and that Havilah Merchants limited is the sole distributor and technical partners of Bruynzeel in West Africa.
Rob Reijnen, Global Export Manager of Bruynzeel, said Nigeria was very key to the company’s global growth and that Havilah is a strategic partner to this expansion. He assured all customers and potential customers of Bruynzeel’s determination of delivering the best technology to its Nigerian customers.
