The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has commended the Kwara State government for closing digital gaps through the building of the e-libraries across the sixteen local government areas of the state.
The Director General of NITDA, Mal. Kashifu Inuwa, who gave the commendation, noted that the building of the e-libraries aligns with the NITDA’s agenda and the the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy, (NDEPS).
“Your approach towards ensuring sustainable development in the Educational sector of Kwara State coupled with striving for a digital transformation in the state is highly commendable because it identifies with three of NITDA’s seven Strategic Pillars,” he stated.
According to Mal. Inuwa, part of the Agency’s strategic pillars was to develop the digital skills of Nigerians across different works of life, provide a robust digital platform to drive digitalization, and enable small, medium and innovative-driven enterprises to thrive.
All of this key into the present administration’s NDEPS and shows we are all harnessing our resources towards securing the future of education by closing the digital gaps.
