Nigeria's ICT4D Policy Resources - ICT Policy Nigeria

How real is ICT4D in Nigeria? How well is Nigeria using Information and Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) for socio-economic development? It's about closing the internal and external divides. What is the state of Nigeria's ICT policy? What ICT policies is Nigeria using for development? The ICT4D Policy resource for Nigeria has been provided for planning, research and evaluation purposes.


How will ICT best be used to address innovation, entrepreneurship, development problems/strategies and the digital divide in Nigeria? Which policies exist for ICT4D, e-business, software development and outsourcing?

ICT has so much promise, it's time to deliver! This guide aims to provide information on various bodies that contribute to ICT policy making at all levels. The ultimate goal is to help by providing a variety of information on ICT policies and policies that affect ICT in Nigeria in one convenient location.

Real Independence, ICT and Nigeria

Again, it's another 1st of October - Nigeria's Independence Day. But what is Nigeria celebrating - real or flag independence? The talk is about independence, but in Nigeria do we recognize the significance of Information and Communications Technology (ICT)? Or the need to build a strong ICT sector? Is Nigeria really independent if ICT is a bystander? How is ICT helping to facilitate genuine sovereignty?

THE NIGERIAN NATIONAL INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY POLICY

The Federal Executive Council approved a national IT policy in March 2001 and the implementation started in April with the establishment of the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), charged with the implementation responsibility. The policy recognized the private sector as the driving engine of the IT sector. It is however overdue for  review. 

In this light, the government setup the Nigerian National ICT For Development (ICT4D) Strategic Action Plan committee to develop a new ICT policy for development as the ICT action plan / roadmap for the nation. Already a lot of time and effort has been invested in developing the policy by the committee. NITDA needs to do all that is required to conclude the exercise and make the new ICT4D policy report public.

How to lay a Solid Foundation for Electronic Governance 

"The task of the leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been". What is the role of Information Technology in governance? Is government doing enough to empower the people through IT? Many government agencies are now using web sites to provide information on the activities of government. Nigerians should be able to ask questions about public issues and make their views known to government. Stone age tools and concepts will not empower the people.

DISRUPT THE STATUS QUO!

     
1.

Ideas are not enough. You must be action oriented to improve your future.

 

 
2.

Don't just think but act. You get results not only from thinking but from acting.

 

 
3.

You have ideas. You want to achieve. You want opportunity.

 

 
4.

But what are you still doing in your comfort zone? The comfort zone is a dangerous place.

 

 
5.

"I wanted to", "I was going to" cannot put on a light bulb, not to talk of moving you forward.

 

 
6.

Aren't you tired of hoping and criticizing? Stop defending status quo that locks you down.

 

 
7.

GO on the offensive now with IT Education and Empowerment.

 

 
8.

What is the use of ideas without action?

 

 
9.

Start becoming the achiever you deserve to be.

 

 
10.

MAKE SURE THERE IS NO STANDING ROOM FOR EXCUSES.
