The National Information Technology Development Agency has said that it lacks enough resources to fully cover the whole of Nigeria digitally.
NITDA ’ s Director , Corporate Planning and Strategy , Agu Collins , disclosed this during a webinar on South – East Regional Dialogue organised by the PDF Bridge programme and UKAID, with the theme , ‘Improving Market Access Through Digital Trade ’ .
He said , “ The resources we have are not elastic enough to cover the whole of Nigeria. Also , we have key demands and we have to maintain what is called federal character and federal spread when we carry out some of our activities .
“ In NITDA , we carry out intervention programmes . We have actually push it to the grassroots . Not quite long, we had a visitor which was the official delegation from Anambra State IT development agency just like NITDA .
Collins added , “ We had some interactions with them and they came up with their requirements . We are facilitating the passage of the law that will ensure that every state has an ICT development agency . ”
