Over 300 civil ser­vants in Niger State have ben­e­fited from the Ibrahim Badamasi Ba­bangida Univer­sity (IBBU), La­pai, Dig­i­tal Skill Ac­qui­si­tion Ini­tia­tive.

The ben­e­fi­cia­ries who were drawn from var­i­ous min­istries and parastals learned ba­sic rudi­ments in desk­top/ mo­bile soft­ware de­vel­op­ment, com­puter util­i­sa­tion, web de­sign/ pro­gram­ming, in­ter­net mar­ket­ing/ en­trepreneur­ship, among oth­ers.

Vice Chan­cel­lor of the univer­sity, Pro­fes­sor Muham­mad Nasir Maitu­rare, said the univer­sity was com­mit­ted to de­vel­op­ing young Nige­ri­ans through ba­sic in­ter­net skills to boost eco­nomic growth as part of its so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity.

He said the ini­tia­tive would among other things avail the youths the op­por­tu­nity to own their busi­nesses and cre­ate jobs, and that youths must be en­cour­aged to take ad­van­tage of the dig­i­tally chang­ing world, adding that with­out the ba­sic dig­i­tal knowl­edge one could not be said to be lit­er­ate.
