CWG Plc is celebrating its 30th anniversary by adding a subsidiary:  ‘FifthLab’ to drive the company’s new strategic direction and further expand its operations across Africa.

In three decades, CWG has evolved to become a publicly quoted company in Nigeria and a Pan-Africa tech solutions firm. From a ‘mustard-seed’ beginning, it is now a leading provider of ICT services across West, Central, and Eastern Africa. Regarded as a tech-multinational with a Nigerian origin, CWG is also a leading cloud services provider, enabling Africa’s small medium enterprises (SMEs) to exploit cloud services for commerce and management.
