Industry Interest Groups back NITDA on GITEX country partnership


Some industry interest groups within the Nigeria’s Information Technology (IT) space may have began to drum support for the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) resolve to fly the nation’s flag at the 2014 GITEX in Dubia, the United Arab Emirate (UAE) reports ITRealms.

Investigations carried out by ITRealms, showed that some of the industry groups have since canvassed support for the Nigeria’s participation from their members, including the Nigeria Internet Registration Association (NIRA), and Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) to name a few.

GITEX is organized by the Dubai World Trade Centre as part of the awareness campaign whereas NITDA has taken up the sensitization of its stakeholders across the country backed with the setting up of the Local Organising Committee (LOC) to maximize Nigeria’s participation at GITEX 2014 with the theme: Re-imagining our future.

ITRealms recalls that NITDA has a relationship with GITEX organizer as the preferred Country Partner for the five-day event slated to hold at Dubai World Trade Center between October 12 and 16, 2014.

ITRealms gathered that while NCS announced its support during the recently National Conference in the South-Eastern state of Enugu, the likes of NIRA and NCS shared this with their membership through eNewsletters.

NIRA is a stakeholder-led organisation, charged with the management of the Nigeria's country code Top Level Domain Name (ccTLD), dot ng and founded on March 23, 2005.

While NCS prides itself as the umbrella organization of all Information Technology professionals, interest groups and stakeholders in Nigeria and formed since 1978 as Computer Association of Nigeria (COAN) before its transformation into today’s NCS in 2002, as a result of harmonization with other stakeholder and interest groups.
