In line with the Federal Government’s priority area of accelerating diversification through digitisation and innovation in the Nigerian economy, the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) says it is partnering with Afrileb Academy.

ConsumerConnect reports NITDA, which disclosed this development in a statement via its verified social media account, noted Malam Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, CCIE, Director-General of NITDA, said this while playing host to a team from Afrelib Academy in his office in Abuja, FCT, recently.

Mrs. Joice Gomina, Executive Director of Operations and Programmes, led the delegation from Afrelib Academy to discuss collaboration for technology development and digital literacy with the agency.

Speaking during the visit, Mrs. Gomina proposed a collaborative effort by NITDA and Afrelib Academy at training teachers, hosting future boot camps, as well as technology and Career Expo, where Inuwa would be invited to serve as the keynote speaker.

In his remarks, the Director-General of NITDA “welcomed the partnership.”

Inuwa stated that such a partnership “aligns with NITDA’s Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan (SRAP 2.0) pillar of fostering Digital Literacy and Cultivate Talent, and that of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s redefined priority area of accelerating diversification through digitisation and innovation.”

He also shared the ongoing project, including the Digital Literacy for All (DL4ALL) Initiative, on which the Director-General requested the team to work with the agency for a more robust plan and implementation in the IT sector of the Nigerian economy, said NITDA.
