Daily Trust - - IT WORLD - By Zakariyya Adaramola

An Abuja based ICT train­ing academy, Tech­spe­cial­ist, has grad­u­ated nine soft­ware and pro­gramme de­vel­op­ers in its Au­gust boot camp pro­gramme.

Speak­ing at the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony in Abuja, a di­rec­tor at the Na­tional In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy De­vel­op­ment Agency (NITDA), Dr Amina Sambo, urged the grad­u­at­ing de­vel­op­ers to be in­no­va­tive in or­der to solve prob­lems for Nige­ria.

Dr Sambo said that gov­ern­ment, through NITDA would al­ways sup­port tech en­trepreneur­ship in the coun­try by of­fer­ing schol­ar­ships to de­serv­ing stu­dents of ter­tiary in­sti­tu­tions and oth­ers at IT hubs across the coun­try.

In his ad­dress, the founder of Tech­spe­cial­ist Academy, Mr Kadiri Salami, said the school started the boot camp to groom more soft­ware and pro­gramme de­vel­op­ers in the coun­try.

He said the academy was look­ing to bridge soft­ware de­vel­op­ment gap in the coun­try by cre­at­ing an en­abling en­vi­ron­ment for tech­no­log­i­cal skill ac­qui­si­tion to thrive.

“We are cre­at­ing a fo­rum for gath­er­ing the bright­est and the best tech-savvy in­di­vid­u­als and train­ing them even fur­ther, to po­si­tion them to lever­age the ben­e­fits deriv­able from a dig­i­tal econ­omy,” he said.
