Federal Government of Nigeria has enjoined all African countries to be committed to digitalization and technology transfer for socio-economic and political freedom of the continent.

According to Chief Ikoh, Africa can only achieve her goals in digitilization, technology and innovation through collaboration which will enhance cross fertilization of ideas necessary to compete and take her desired position among comity of continents.


In her speech the leader of the team and the Secretary- General of the Digital Cooperation Organization, DCO, Ms Deemah Al-Yahya, said, the aim of her visit was to empower the digital transformation and economic strategies of Nigeria as well as understand the system of the country.

She commended Nigeria for being one of the founding members of the organization made up of twelve countries from different continents and represents 600 million population covering two trillion dollars GDP.
