To become tomorrow’s innovators, young Nigerians require access to technology and a digitally transformed government.
Our Vision is simple...
"A Digital Nigeria"
A Digital Economy which supports the development and growth of digital professions, reduces wealth inequality, impedes corrupt practices within the public sector, and supports the general growth of the Nigerian economy.
Improved professionalism of digital practices for jobs creation.
Supporting Economic diversification and economic growth.
Improving opportunities for those economically marginalized by the digital divide.
According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, U.S. Department of Commerce, the global digital economy is forecasted to be worth US$53.3 Trillion in 2023. For a country like Nigeria, the digital economy offers major opportunities but also poses a huge risk of the country being left behind if not fully harnessed. Join and support the cause for a Digital Nigeria.
The Potential for Nigeria
The African Union’s Digital Economy Initiative for Africa (DE4A), an initiative supported by the World Bank, believes “Nigeria is well- positioned to develop a strong digital economy”, one that would have a transformational impact on the country given its position as the largest economy in Africa, with one of the largest youth populations in the world.
Let us show you some stats
The median cost of a basic internet-enabled device is 120% of the average monthly income.
Nigerians would need to spend 1/3 of their income to meet what the average person spends on ICT globally.
More than 50% of Nigeria's over 200 million people do not have any digital skills whatsoever.
Why the Digital Sector?
According to a report by the National Bureau of Statistics in Q2 of 2022, the Digital Sector contributed more to Nigeria’s GDP than the Oil sector, with 18.44% against the Oil sector’s contribution of 6.33%.
Even with an economy in decline, Nigeria has been able to produce African’s tech start-up with an investment of over one billion dollars. Flutterwave, OPay and Andela, all unicorns, are a testament to the economic opportunities that abound within a Nigerian digital economy.
With the ever urgent need to diversify the Nigerian Economy and plan for a future with energy transition, supporting the growth of a Digital Economy is the most sensible thing to do.
