ITREALMS ... making leadership SENSE with digital news!

The Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, has applauded the leadership of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), for achieving tremendous milestone in a space of 20 years, reports 
The Executive Vice Chairman, NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta, who made the comment in Abuja at the official commemoration of the agency’s 20th Anniversary said NITDA has surpassed the expectations of most Nigerians by meeting its mandates with ease.

The EVC also took out time to appreciate NITDA’s Director-General, Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, his predecessors, pioneers and other Directors for their sacrifice in repositioning the agency.

Earlier, while highlighting the agency’s achievements in the last two decades NITDA’s Director-General, Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, said the agency’s creation symbolized Nigeria’s resolution to embrace digital transformation, adding that their story better explains Nigeria’s journey to a digital economy.

He said NITDA has been working assiduously to help Nigeria catch the train of the 4th industrial revolution without leaving any sector of the economy behind.

Mr. Abdullahi added that the agency has played key roles in National development by providing the legal framework for Information Technology Development, pioneering IT developmental projects, facilitating access to Information Technology goods and services, catalysing job creation and ensuring National Security.

“What is the difference between digitization and digitalization? Digitization means using IT to enhance traditional processes,” he said.

The NITDA helmsman also noted that the agency has substantially actualized the National IT Policy’s goal to digitize Nigeria and the Agency is now in the phase of digitalizing the country.
