Nigeria has created a new ministry. It is called Ministry of Communication Technology and it will focus on the development of Communication Technology in the nation. You will be sure that only ICT will be the only technology Nigerians will know as usual. This is a country where newspapers present ICT as the only technology on earth. We have left agricultural technology, geophysical technology and all other aspects of engineering and technology of the media. It is like ICT = Technology.
So with this new ministry, all the options the kids will have is, to become a technology person, go ICT.
Meanwhile, Tekedia thinks this is a nice one. At least it can help us focus on the real aspect of technology. From a statement from the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Senator Anyim Pius Anyim, they are looking for a minister who is very versatile in the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to be in charge of the ministry in order to give it the desired focus in view of the critical importance of ICT in driving a modern economy.
We think Mr. President has done a good job creating this ministry. Now, fund it very well.
