Omobola Johnson, Nigeria’s communication technology minister, has inaugurated the board of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in Abuja.

Inaugurating the newly constituted board, Johnson reiterated the commitment of her ministry to deploy technology tools in ensuring socio-economic development of the West African country.

Concerning the event, she described the inauguration of the board as a step in the right direction and called for synergy between the board and the agency in identifying ways through which indigenous IT firms can grow.

Tosin Ajayi, NITDA board chairman, stressed the importance of ICT to global development.

“ICT is a tool that will completely change the world,” Ajayi. “The Ministry of Communications Technology is the most important ministry in the country because, without a knowledge-based economy, we will be retrogressive.

“IT is the most important tool ever created by mankind and together with the able management of NITDA, we will leave no stone unturned in exploiting the benefits of IT for the greater good of the country.”
