What’s recession got to do with technology adoption in Nigeria?

Last week Sunday, we had our annual thanksgiving service in my church. The Pastor mentioned three categories of people who should come out to give special thanks, the third category was for people who had started businesses or gotten married in 2016. Much to my surprise, this was the largest group! It was confusing at first because I thought, how is it that there were so many new business ventures in a year marked with so much economic downturn? Looking back though, it does make sense because recession tends to drive entrepreneurship and innovation.
