Nigeria Becomes Part of Cisco’s Digital Growth Initiative

Date:

Nigeria has officially joined hands with Cisco’s Digital Growth Initiative, aiming to supercharge the country’s digital advancement. This program, which started in 2015, operates in almost 50 countries and has supported numerous projects benefiting a substantial portion of the world’s population and economy.

In May this year, Cisco and the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) signed a pact to collaborate on digital transformation and skill enhancement. The result of this partnership was unveiled when Technology Distributions (TD Africa), a technology solutions provider, and Cisco together inaugurated a Cisco EDGE Centre in Lagos.

Located at the Tech Experience Centre in Victoria Island, Lagos, the EDGE Centre serves as a platform for showcasing technologies, aiding local innovators and entrepreneurs, and delivering advanced digital technology training. It also bridges the gap between local, small and medium enterprises (SMMEs) and global Cisco experts.

Fran Katsoudas, Cisco’s Executive Vice President, underlined Nigeria’s potential for an all-inclusive digital future and underscored Cisco’s commitment to supporting digital skills, innovation, and cutting-edge technologies.

Chioma Chimere, Coordinating Managing Director of TD Africa, expressed the intention to empower SMMEs with tools and knowledge for success in the digital era through collaboration with Cisco.

One of the central components of the program in Nigeria is the Cisco Networking Academy, a long-standing initiative that has trained over 120,000 students and equipped more than 400,000 individuals in Nigeria with digital and cybersecurity skills.
