The Abuja Entreprise Agency (AEA) in partnership with National Information Technology Development Agency on Tuesday, empowered 40 private and public schools in the Federal Capital Territory with Information and Communication Technology equipment and accessories.

Speaking during the closing ceremony of the Digital Innovation Training Programme For Secondary Schools in the FCT, the Managing Director/ Chief Executive Officer of the Agency, Chudi Ugwuada-Ezinigwe said the initiative was to help the children meet up with the current realities in ICT world. He said the exercise which started in 2023 is aimed at helping school children meet up with the changing world of Information and Communication Technology (ICT). According to him, if serious measures are not taken to guide the youth they will be left out.

Ugwuada-Ezinigwe said, “The exercise is to help the children Key into the global digital age which is an ongoing affair all over the world. If we don’t get this youth to take the subject of information and communication technology seriously we will be left behind by the world. “We are getting the necessary support from the FCT Administration and indeed working in collaboration with the NITDA .

“The programme is an ongoing one, we are still going to enter another phase of it to ensure that this young ones that received this training are not left dangling but we will ensure that we give them the necessary mentorship with all the materials. “It is a work in progress in the direction of nation building to ensure that we have a better society in ICT world. In his remarks, the Director General National Information and Technology Development Agency, Kashifu Abdullahi said the partnership was a cornerstone of the Agency’s comprehensive digital literacy for all programmes. Abdullahi who was represented by the Director, Information Technology Infrastructure Solutions, Oladejo Olawumi, said the plan was strategically aligned with NITDA roadmap.  According to the DG, the training would bring about fostering digital literacy and cultivating talents, promoting inclusive access to digital infrastructure and services, also nurturing an innovative and entrepreneurial ecosystem.

On his part, the FCTA Head of Service, Samuel Atang represented by the acting director Human Resource Management, Akinkunmi Ogunniran, pledged the administration’s commitment to helping agencies deliver on their mandates.
