NCCF-ICT Working Group meets practitioners in Lagos

The NCCF-ICT, a sectoral working group under the Nigerian Content Development Monitoring Board (NCDMB) which represents the interest of ICT practitioners in the oil and gas sector has been fixed for tomorrow, May 18, for her quarterly group meeting, reports ITRealms.

According to public statement made available to ITRealms by the Mr Uchenna Onyekaonwu, Secretary, NCCF – ICT and made available to NCCF ICT members by Olatunji Abibat (Mrs.), the meeting would feature the Executive Secretary to the Board, which promises to be an avenue for questions and answers, networking and interaction. 
"And of course the latest update on the Board’s activities and the 10 Years Strategic Plan recently approved for implementation will be discussed," Onyekaonwu said. 
ITRealms reports that the meeting slated to kick off by 11:00am, would hold at the Southern Sun Hotels, Ikoyi, Lagos State.

Intending participants will be given opportunity to ask relevant questions from the representatives of the Executive Secretary with regards to the implementation of the NOGICD Act in relation to ICT goods and services required in the Oil and Gas sector

It would be recalled that NCDMB created NCCF-ICT to represent the interest of ICT practitioners in the oil and gas sector. Due to lack of awareness/information about the provisions of the NOGICD Act. 

ITRealms recalls that the Act, in recognizing the importance of IT/ICT to the oil and gas sector specifically in section 58(f) of the Act, directed the NCDMB to set up the NCCF-ICT required to consist of stakeholders, government and regulatory agencies in the ICT.

According to Section 12 of the NOGICD Act, Nigerians are to be given first consideration for the provisions of goods and services in the sector.
