Head, Corporate Affairs and External Relations, NITDA, Mrs. Hadiza Umar, in a press statement available to ITREALMS, said the programme is the combination of execution of two initiatives from the seven NITDA's Strategic RoadMap and Action Plan SRAP 2021-2024, which are Digital Transformation and Digital Literacy and Skills.
Digital Transformation, she said, enables the facilitation of digital inclusion program for people living with disabilities (PLWDs) and other digitally excluded people aimed at increasing the level of digitization and digitalization across both public and private sectors.

On Digital Literacy and Skills, Mrs. Umar said, is focused on massive training of Nigerians from all works of life to increase the rate of digital literacy and skills among Nigerians and create a pool of global competitive human capital towards the drive of digital transformation in the public and private sector.
