The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) stands as a beacon of guidance in Nigeria’s digitalisation and entrepreneurship pursuit, the Director General of NITDA, Mal. Kashifu Inuwa has declared.
“As Nigeria navigates digitalisation and entrepreneurial evolution, NITDA stands as a beacon of guidance and is committed to providing an enabling environment, a framework of support, and a platform for collaboration that empowers all stakeholders to be catalysts of change,” he said.
Speaking at a one-day stakeholders’ workshop programme in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State, which was organised by the Agency in collaboration with the state’s Ministry of Science and Technology, Mal. Inuwa noted that whereas available resources are at the disposal of industry players, the Agency’s doors are open to partnerships that would pave the way for a digitally empowered future.
Mal. Inuwa was represented by the Agency’s Director, Zonal Offices Directorate, Ajayi Babajide Ayodimej.
He said apart from partnership and collaboration with stakeholders, NITDA will provide opportunity for states to take advantage of the provision of the Agency’s Strategic Roadmap and Action Plan (SRAP 2021-2024).
Inuwa who described the theme of the event: ‘Creating Opportunities, Breaking Boundaries: Towards Digitalisation and Entrepreneurial Evolution’ as apt for the engagement, noted that the gathering was not only to discuss concepts, but to chart a course that will redefine industries, empower individuals, and shape the future of the nation.
“Modern digital technologies have changed how uncertainty in business processes and results work and how we can effectively handle these uncertainties. This brings up important questions about where digital technologies and entrepreneurship intersect, especially in digital business. We think about two main results: more flexible business processes and results, and less fixed places where business decisions are made,” the DG said.
