TELL Magazine Features Nigerian Constitution Blackberry App Developer
TELL Magazine on its Society section (Page 58) has a feature on the dude and the blackberry app for Nigerian constitution.
Abubakar, a Computer Science graduate from Ashesi University in Ghana is also a TED Global 2007 Fellow. With a natural flair for programming, systems engineering and volunteering, he modestly describes himself as a social entrepreneur.
“I got interested in mobile apps and I asked myself what I could do. Fortunately for me, during my brainstorming, the Nigerian constitution was in front of me, and it made sense, because I’ve had it for long and read some of the pages”, Abubakar said in the TELL publication.
The blackberry app released on January 13th was downloaded 10,000 times after just 72 hours. So far it has seen over 15, 500 downloads.
The blackberry app is the first of its kind in Africa and has become a useful tool for Nigerian citizens the world over to access the constitution from their mobile phones.
