NextDaySite boss lauds MoI portal

CHIEF executive, NextDaySite.com, Mr. Oliver Okafor, has lauded the recent launch of portal by the Ministry of Information (MoI) in Abuja.

A portal is online home site for Web browser and provides links to information and other Web sites, according to MSN Encarta.

Mr. Okafor who made his views known in Lagos, said the launch was in line with modern business modules, especially at the government circle.

He noted that it would afford Nigerian businesses the chance to align itself with the rest of the world through provision of adequate information on the country among others.

Mr. Okafor also lamented that less than five per cent of the nation’s businesses have functional websites.

“Nigerians must step up their game or risk extinction. The internet is a powerful engine that continues to bridge the physical and economic gap between us and the developed nations,” he said.

Internet, he pointed out, has empowered people in ordinary parts of the world to realize extraordinary financial wealth by taking their products and services to the world market.

Stressing that now is the time for the populace to think globally.
“Technology has made it possible for every individual to be an entrepreneur. I believe the time has come when an English teacher in Abuja can easily market her technical writing services, showcase her writing samples, and inform prospective clients on her labour rates on her website that will be viewed by the thousands of companies worldwide that control their overhead by outsourcing specialized tasks,” Mr. Okafor asserted.

To this end, he disclosed that NextDaySite is planning to introduce its full range of web enabled products and online solutions including eCommerce solutions, content management systems, database applications and Business to Business (B2B) communications architecture services.

Negotiations, he said, have already advanced for the firm’s proposed partnership with Fluent US to commence a new range of Learning Management Systems to encourage e-Learning for individuals and organizations alike.

Other core services of NextDaySite, he said, cut across the Internet, creative design, application development, e-learning and new media technologies.
