“Intel is very passionate about educating Nigerian consumers on the ground-breaking technology of the 2in1 category of devices which offer users the opportunity for more productivity and creativity. Partnering with Lenovo and Microsoft on The Best of Both Worlds campaign is our way of doing that,” he said.
On the unveiling of the Campaign ambassador, Ekundare said, “We think Ebuka is the right fit, he has a very successful and dynamic career and no doubt needs a device that will help him connect on the go and achieve as much productivity as possible. On the flip side, Ebuka also has a playful and exciting side to him. A 2in1 device with its full tablet and PC capabilities, duality and flexibility will enable him in deciding whether to be in work or play mode each day,” he concluded.
