ConsumerConnect reports Dr. ’Bosun Tijani, Honourable Minister for Communications, Innovation and Digital Economy, who revealed this in a recent statement, said the objective of the national project is to “co-create a design system and visual templates for all MDAs (Ministries, Departments and Agencies).”

Tijani stated: “Building on the work done at NITDA Nigeria (National Information Technology Development Agency) on Guidelines for Government Websites, we are now looking to co-create a design system and visual templates for all MDAs.

“This platform will provide guidance and code to help MDAs design and build accessible, government Web sites.”

The Minister also explained the proposed visual style would offer “a unique and user-friendly design for our Web sites that allows for consistency across multiple government touch points.
