A team from Seidor, a Spanish-based technology consulting company has pitched a collaboration request to the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA).

The team led by the Spanish Ambassador to Nigeria, Juan Sell, made the pitch at the Corporate Headquarters of NITDA, while on a courtesy visit.

According to Juan Sell, the collaborative talks would deepen the already existing bilateral relations between the two countries.

“We are here to facilitate and we will be following up on your proposal to organise further technical meetings or focus as I said, we are open to any recommendations because we are aware of the central role that you play in the ecosystem.

“As for other meetings that the team would have outside the agency with other potential partners in the public sector or the private sector, we will be very grateful and look forward to receiving your recommendations and advice on the best approach to hit the ground running,” Seli added.

The meeting also featured a slide presentation from one of SEIDOR’s representatives, Jaume Feuntes, who explained the fact that SEIDOR is a technology consulting company that promotes the competitiveness and the transformation of organisations based on the opportunities presented by technologies and business knowledge, always focusing on the value of the human factor and committed to talent hunt and social development.

Responding, the Director-General of NITDA, Mal. Kashifu Inuwa reiterated that Nigeria is open to investors and investments, as the country is unarguably inching towards joining the community of digitally driven Nations.

Inuwa, who was represented at the meeting by the Director of Information Technology (IT) Infrastructure Solutions (ITIS), Dr. Usman Abdullahi Gambo, described the meeting as historic, stressing that the areas to collaborate are vast, especially as there are multiple projects that NITDA is driving from organisational point of view and others drove on behalf of other agencies of government.

“With the actualisation of the centre, the youth segment of the population is constantly being challenged to channel their ingenuity towards preparing solutions that seek to address challenges across all sectors of the economy, immediate and future problems that have a global impact,” he said.

While enumerating key areas of partnership which include Talent Management, Innovations, Local Content, and Capacity Building, amongst others, the Director-General informed the delegation that the creation of the National Centre of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (NCAIR) underpins the government’s determination to develop a suitable environment for discovering and harnessing the limitless ingenious ideas of Nigeria’s teeming youth population for national growth through the promotion of innovative technologies.
