CPN to dwell on Digital Infrastructure @2019 IT Assembly - ITREALMS

The Computer Professionals (Registration) Council of Nigeria (CPN) has concluded plans to dwell on the ‘Digital Infrastructure: Defining the Next Step’ at its 2019 edition of Information Technology (IT) Assembly slated for the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja next month, reports ITREALMS.

Registrar and Secretary to the Council, Mr. Allwell C. Achumba revealed this to ITREALMS at CPN Media Executive Forum.

He also said that the two-day event has been slated between Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 June, 2019 at NICON Luxury Hotel, Abuja, noting that Nigeria needs to create wealth and sustain the prosperity through digital infrastructure by giving more people the knowledge and skills to compete, collaborate and connect so as to move the country forward.

Digital knowledge and skills, he said have become the global currency of the 21st century economies.

“In this digital economy, there is no central bank that prints this currency. The thing that will keep you moving forward is always what you bring to the table yourself.

Achumba who was in the company of the CPN President, Prof. Charles Uwadia, said that the council has chosen to focus on this invaluable tool that will propel the economy and prepare industries for global competitiveness.

“CPN as an agency of government that regulates and controls the practice of information technology practice in Nigeria is taking the bull by the horn by convoking yet another forum,” he declared.

Other members of the Council present at the media executive forum includes the vice president and vice chairman in council, Chief Kole Jagun, Chief Charles Onyeukwu, Olorogun James Emadoye, and Mr. Jide Awe, among others.

ITREALMS recalled that CPN was established through Act No. 49 of 1993 and charged with the regulation, control and supervision of the computing profession and practice in Nigeria in line with Section 1 (2) of the Act under the supervision of the Federal Ministry of Education, with the National Assembly having the oversight functions over it.
