Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
ICT skills have been identified worldwide as a great tool in increasing personal productivity and improving standard of living. I want the Nigerian government to support, promote and encourage the development of ICT skills among it's youth by establishing policies that mandates the development of this skills right from primary schools.
It's all part of making a better world.
I want to see a Nigeria where all youths are technology skilled and are able to improve their standard of living through entrepreneurship using the relevant ICT skills they possess.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by youths (Young men and women), private organizations and the Government. When youths possess relevant programming, web development or database management skills, they can more readily become self-employed by providing tech services for clients and organizations. This will go a long way to reduce government dependency and improve the economy.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Empower 1 million Nigerians with programming, software development or web development skills
Create technology training hubs and incubation centers in all States across Nigeria.
Fund ICT startups in Nigeria to improve their ability to develop more Nigerian techpreneurs
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
When I see government policy that mandates the teaching of ICT subjects in Nigerian schools and directives that all computer science Students in Nigerian universities must go for a compulsory 3 months intern
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
