In a significant stride towards advancing Nigeria’s digital capacity, the Minister of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijanni, alongside Dr. Aminu Maida, the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), sealed a groundbreaking agreement with Nokia. The partnership aims to train young Nigerians in the latest 4G/5G radio and transmission technologies, aligning with the nation’s vision for technological advancement.
According to a press statement endorsed by Kunle Azeez, Manager of Media Relations Management at NCC, revealed that Dr. Maida formalized the partnership by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Nokia Solutions and Networks Nigeria. The agreement entails the establishment of training programs at the Nigerian Communications Commission’s Digital Parks, focusing on equipping young Nigerians with essential skills in 4G/5G technologies, he added.
“Nokia Nigeria’s involvement extends beyond training initiatives, as the company commits to setting up a fully functional 5G/4G test lab, leveraging its cutting-edge radio and transmission technologies. This collaboration not only enhances the technological landscape of Nigeria but also bolsters the country’s preparedness for the future of telecommunications.
Azeez emphasized the collaborative effort’s significance, stating, “This collaboration advances the vision to enhance the capacity and skills-set of Nigerians, by equipping them with contemporary skills and knowledge needed to adapt to the rapidly evolving telecommunications industry.”
Aligned with the Ministry of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy’s objectives to promote digital literacy and cultivate technical talents nationwide, Nokia Nigeria plans to launch an Entrepreneur Learning Programme. This initiative will provide vocational training to 200 Nigerian students selected from across the six geopolitical zones, fostering a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship in the telecommunications sector.
As Nigeria embarks on this journey to strengthen its digital infrastructure and empower its workforce, partnerships like these between NCC and Nokia play a pivotal role in driving sustainable growth and prosperity in the digital age.
