Metro President Buhari to Establish 6 ICT Universities

President Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government has announced plans to establish at least one Information and Communications Technology (ICT) university in each of the six geo-political zones of the country.

The minister of Communications Technology, Barr. Adebayo Shittu, said this while delivering a keynote address on Friday, at a one day ICT sensitization workshop for secondary schools in the FCT, organised in collaboration with Totalview Nigeria and the National Information Technology Development Agency, NITDA.


According to him, the university, when established, would focus on “training teachers that will in turn go to other schools to train other Nigerians.’’

‘‘With modern facilities, it would do Nigeria more favour to convert such an institute to a focused ICT university that will train teachers that will go into our schools to train our young people, and then over time graduate highly skilled technocrats that can compete in the global market and create jobs.’’

The minister was represented by the Director of ICT in the ministry, Mrs. Monila Udoh.
