Young Nigeria girls develop mobile application; emerged winner in Global Technology Competition

Team Save-A-Soul, a team of teenage girls representing Nigeria in the 2018 Technovation world pitch junior division on Thursday night, emerged winner in San Francisco, USA after defeating teams from China, Uzbekistan, Turkey, Spain and the United States of America.

The teenage girls who were selected from 2,000 mobile application developers to represent Africa at the world pitch, developed a mobile application called the "FD Detector", an application that can help tackle the problem of fake pharmaceutical products in the country.

According to Team Save-A-Soul, Nigeria provides one of the largest markets for fake drugs and as a result intends to partner with the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), using the app, to tackle the challenge.

Well done girls!!! Keep making Nigeria proud.
