NITDA INITIATES DIGITAL CENTRE INSTALLATION IN KAFANCHAN

Date:

The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has commenced the installation of a Digital Economy Centre (DEC) in Kafanchan, the administrative centre of Kaduna South Senatorial District. This move comes just a month after the agency’s approval for the deployment of the centre. Mr Simon Yusuf, the Principal of Government Secondary School, Kafanchan Senior, has received the necessary materials for the installation; a significant step towards enabling digital services in the area.

Senator Sunday Marshall Katung, who represents the Zone in the 10th Senate, played a crucial role in securing the agency’s approval for the establishment of a 300-capacity women and youth training centre within his constituency. Out of the proposed five project sites, the Government Secondary School was selected.

Mr. Yusuf expressed gratitude to Senator Katung for nominating the school for this transformative project. He also pledged to ensure the proper safeguarding of the equipment for the benefit of all; particularly the students. This initiative aims to provide them with access to digital resources, thereby enhancing their learning experiences.

Currently, over 80 per cent of the required materials have been delivered; indicating substantial progress in the implementation of the project.

Senator Katung applauded NITDA for the swift deployment of the ICT equipment, emphasising that it will lead to a more digitally adept community. The upcoming centre is expected to encompass various essential components including computers, internet connectivity, local area network, e-learning solutions, solar-powered inverter, and a generator. The project is on track for completion in the near future.
