The President of the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), Rev. Sunday Folayan, has expressed readiness of the association to partner with the Federal Government on any relevant area of studies in the proposed Information and Communication Technology (ICT) University being tinkered by the Buhari-led administration, ITRealms.
Speaking in Lagos, Folayan said that although the association would never go cap- in- hand seeking government recognition for partnership in the proposed ICT University project which if made realistic would be first of its kind in Africa, but would readily make itself available for relevant services towards the success of the proposed institution and the continued advancement of ICT knowledge in Nigeria and Africa.
ITRealms recalls that the minister of Communications, Barrister Adebayo Shittu, had late last year at a forum, hinted that the federal government would establish a specialized ICT University to take off in 2017.
Folayan was however silent on whether the government had officially notified his association on the proposed specialized institution and the specific advisory, contributory roles the government expects NIRA to play considering the importance of in-depth foundational know-how input needed for the eventual take off of the varsity.
