The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) is calling on Nigerians and indeed experts across the world to bring to the table inputs that will help develop the National Artificial Intelligence Policy (NAIP).

The National Artificial Intelligence Policy (NAIP is a fallout of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS), which was developed by the Federal Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy (FMoCDE), to reposition Nigeria’s Economy and leverage the many opportunities provided by these digital technologies.

In a statement issued and signed by Mrs. Hadiza Umar, Head, Corporate Affairs and External Relations, the development of the NAIP is envisaged to maximise the benefits, mitigate possible risks, and address some of the complexities attributed to using AI in our daily activities.

According to the statement, the policy will provide directions on how Nigeria can take advantage of AI, including the development, use and adoption of AI to proactively facilitate the development of Nigeria into a sustainable digital economy.

“NITDA is responsible for developing standards, guidelines, and frameworks for the IT sector in Nigeria, as enshrined in Section 6 of the NITDA Act 2007. The Agency invites the public to contribute and participate in developing National Artificial Intelligence Policy (NAIP),” it said.
