The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), National Identity Management Commission (NIMC), and Galaxy Backbone are set to bring more honour to Nigeria at the 2022 Gulf Information Technology Exhibition (GITEX) holding in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The Exhibition, which began today, October 10, will end on October 14. This year’s edition of GITEX, an annual enterprise technology and global digital transformation event, is taking place at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
Nigeria’s Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Professor Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, who inaugurated the exhibition pavilion of Nigeria at the Exhibition, said: “I am confident that the four Nigerian start-ups and innovators will surely give their foreign counterparts a run for their money. And will cart away the prizes at stake, during the grand finale of the exhibition”.
According to Professor Pantami, the Nigerian government, in the last three years, had launched several programmes, policies and projects that have boosted the Nigerian digital economy sub-sector.
“We have recorded significant milestones and great accomplishments in our bid to drive Nigeria’s economy digitally. And our amazing successes are verifiable”.
