The Federal Government of Nigeria said it has signed an agreement with tech giants, Huawei and CISCO, to establish a minimum of 300 academies in Nigeria and train a minimum of 30,000 citizens in advanced ICTs. This is even as the country is pushing its digital economy through partnerships with various global tech companies.
Recall that earlier this year, the government had also signed an agreement with Microsoft for the former 5 million Nigerians, especially in the field of artificial intelligence (AI).
The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Pantami, who revealed it, said that it was all part of the government’s efforts to achieve the goal of reaching 95% digital literature in the country of 2030.
