Dr Pantami reiterated the commitment of the Federal Government to support all legitimate endeavours geared towards the growth and development of the Digital Economy sector. “We are excited about your elevation because firstly, you are a Nigerian and this fulfills part of the policies of the President to ensure that indigenes are considered first, except where capacity is lacking”.

Similarly, we are keen on empowering our citizens with the requisite digital skills and have initiated various programmes in that regard.
