These individuals will play a crucial role in managing and assisting participants in the 3MTT programme as they leverage the Learning Platform designed by IHS Nigeria. With their guidance, 3MTT participants will have the support they need to navigate the learning platform and maximise their learning experience.
Minister of Communications, Innovations & Digital Economy, Dr. ‘Bosun Tijani, expressed his excitement about the collaborative effort, stating that significant collaboration between the public and private sectors is required for the national digital transformation journey.
This partnership with IHS Nigeria is the first of many that will help achieve our goal to make Nigeria a net exporter of tech talent, as outlined in the Strategic Blueprint.
As part of IHS Nigeria’s support, the company has committed to paying the salaries of the 37 dedicated learning community managers nationwide.
Additionally, access to the IHS Learning Platform will play a significant role in supporting 3MTT talent development efforts.
Mohamad Darwish, the CEO of IHS Nigeria stated that the company’s collaboration with the Federal Government on the 3MTT initiative aligns with the President’s Renewed Hope Agenda and the Minister of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy’s Strategic Plan.
“He mentioned that the initiative is aligned with one of their sustainability pillars, which is education. He further added that investing in digital skills will help build a skilled and qualified talent pool. This will stimulate job creation, innovation, business growth, and the diversification of the economy.”
It is further evidence of IHS’s continued commitment to building a prosperous nation, along with their recently announced milestone commemorating a rollout of over 10,000 kilometres of fibre optic cables across Nigeria’s 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, which is aimed at improving the quality and access to broadband and next-generation digital services for individuals, businesses, and organisations throughout the country.
