Reviewing the industry in 2022 on Tuesday, President Sodiya told 
ITREALMS in Lagos that NCS, the umbrella body of Information Technology (IT) professionals in the country, made lots of achievements in the just ended year.

He singled out a few to include improved recognition and good governance, inclusive growth and collaboration, enhanced programmes and activities to name but a few.

He also revealed that NCS membership is now made up of over 15,000 professionals and the society has remained relevant in promoting IT developmental values and steadfast in the pursuance of its goals and vision.

“NCS is the umbrella body of all Information Technology (IT) professionals and practitioners in the country, with over 15,000 memberships across many interest groups and stakeholders serving the interest of all and the nation in the IT eco System,” he said.

Some of major achievements of NCS in 2022, he said, was in improved recognition and good governance which has facilitated NCS members serving in many government committees, stressing that these were achieved because of the improved relationship with the ministry and effective engagement with government.

NCS, he revealed, was appointed as a member of presidential committee on digital economy and e-government; additionally, NCS is represented on startup bill committee that was recently passed, and NCS is represented on governing board of the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC).

On the areas of inclusive growth and collaboration, Prof. Sodiya, further told ITREALMS that NCS concluded collaboration across board for an inclusive and robust society.

“We continued to collaborate with organisations in all our activities i.e. Bluechip Technologies; Federal Inland Revenue; Zinox Technologies, Military, State Government etc” he named a few, pointing out that NCS is not relenting in engaging individuals and organisations that are practicing IT but not members of society.

“Membership of NCS has massively increased through these interactions in addition to enhanced programmes and activities,” he said.

The 2022 calendar of activities, Prof. Sodiya said, was prepared and released in November 2021 for advanced planning and necessary budgetary provisions by both individual members and corporate bodies.

“The activities and programmes were carefully structured to expose members to modern skills and development in the field of Information Technology.
