NIG e-biz confab’13: CommTech minister to lead dignitaries

Minister of Communication Technology, Mrs. Omobola Johnson, has been confirmed to lead dignitaries in the sector to the annual e-business conference by the Nigeria E-Business: Internet Group (NIG) with the theme,
Broadband Technology, an Important Tool for Accelerated Growth & Development, reports DigitalSENSE Business News.

The executive secretary, NIG, Mr. Fidelis Orji disclosed this to DigitalSENSE Business News, saying that the event has been scheduled to hold at the Golden Gate Restaurant, Lagos on December 12-13, 2013.

He also noted that Nigeria Internet Group (NIG) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization promoting the Internet in Nigeria and is organizing the event in collaboration with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC).

NIG President, Engr. Adebayo Banjo, was quoted in a press statement made available to DigitalSENSE Business News as saying that the e-business is simply an internet technology driven business and has continued to be a catalyst to accelerated economic growth in many countries globally.

“With so many developments in the Nigeria information and communication technology sector (ICT) sector, Nigeria is set and has already joined the rest of the world in driving its economy with e-Business,” he said.

Banjo pointed out to DigitalSENSE Business News that some of the most significant developments in the sector which include the African mobile phone personal computers and liquid crystal display (LCD) manufacturing plant set up by RLG, a $10 million factory that will be sited in Osun State, and would be opened before 2013 closes. When completed, aside from being the first in the country, it would attract about 120 million active telephone subscribers.

This, he said, is an exciting news because major foreign Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) have consistently shunned the idea of citing assembly plants in Nigeria, blaming infrastructural deficit as a major challenge.

Banjo told DigitalSENSE Business News that the conference would examine critical success factors to e-business adoption in Nigeria such as improved broadband penetration, pervasive e-payment services, skilled manpower, appropriate legal and regulatory framework and the political will of government to implement the right policies among others, while the event will attract experts from in and outside the country.

Other dignitaries include the Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), Dr. Eugene Juwah and the Director General of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA); Dr. Ashiru Sani Daura would both present keynote addresses at the occasion. 

While NIG Board of Trustee would be handy to welcome guest and participants to the 2013 edition of this annual conference.
