افتراضي Poor Local ICT Content Policy, FG Carpeted For It

Information and Communications Technology stakeholders in the country have criticised the Federal Government For not putting in place adequate policy to drive sustainable growth and development of the ICT industry through Local Content policy.

They Carpeted the government For failing to back policy statements up with Acts of the National Assembly.

Gathered at the a breakfast forum on the Nigerian Digital Agenda at 52, organised by Horizons and Cyber Africa, the experts lamented the situation whereby policies were not used to drive Local Content in the IT industry.

They recalled that the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo gave a directive that ministries, departments and agencies should patronise Local IT products, especially computers.

But immediately Obasanjo’s term ended the directive was jettisoned.

Experts attributed the development to the failure of the government to back the directive with an Act of the National Assembly.

The President, Nigerian Internet Group, Mr. Bayo Banjo, said it was a fundamental breach For the government to make a policy and go against it.

In the same vein, the Chief Executive Officer, New Horizon, a leading ICT and e-Business training firm in the country, Mr. Tim Akano, said it was impossible to articulate discourse on digital Nigeria without updating the contents in schools, especially in higher institutions of learning.

He lamented that the Content on offer in Nigerian schools was 30 years old; adding that it was practically impossible to build a digitally competent population without current and relevant content.

Speaking in the same vein, the Chairman, Teledom Group, Dr. Emmanuel Ekuwem, said the Nigerian population must be digitally empowered.

He said, “If you have a PhD and you are not digitally-empowered, you will be considered an illiterate.

“Nigerians must combine functional literacy with computer literacy to compete in the emerging knowledge-driven economy.”

Ekuwem said every citizens must be digitally competent. According to him, it is a fundamental human right For every Nigerian to be digitally competent.
