Nigeria was represented by 15 students from Ahmadu Bello University, University of Port Harcourt, and the University of Ibadan.
Three Nigerian students have been named champions of Huawei Technologies’ global cloud and artificial intelligence competition.
The Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria students defeated 150,000 students from 82 nations and 2000 universities.
According to Peoples Gazette, the university’s Vice-Chancellor verified this during the 2019/2020 Huawei Nigeria ICT Competition Award and inauguration of the 2021/2022 launch ceremony in Zaria on Wednesday, May 26.
At the regional final, Nigeria was represented by 15 students from Ahmadu Bello University, University of Port Harcourt, and the University of Ibadan.
Their good outing meant they’d go onto the global finals. At the global finals, the trio of Hamza Atabor, Emmanuel Abba, and Hamza Beira from ABU Zaria earned first prize in Network Track Globally.
Another trio of Mustapha Jimoh, Dahir Muhammad-Dahir, and Abdullahi Khalifa Muhammad then went on to win the grand prize in cloud and artificial intelligence at the global final.
Nigerians celebrated them on social media after a Twitter user @OvieAli shared the news.
