FG Empowers Women Through ICT Initiative

The Federal Government has restated its commitment to empowering Nigerian girls and women through its ICT gender empowerment initiatives.

This was disclosed by Minister of Communication Technology, Dr Omobola Johnson at an interactive session with young women undergoing training at the Ministry’s 1000 Girls ICT training program held in Abuja, yesterday.

She explained that the  Ministry is  empowering women and girls to embrace ICT to actualise their potential and contribute to the economic development of Nigeria through various specific technology initiatives, adding that the programme is part of the federal government’s GWIN programme aimed at empowering girls and women in Nigeria.

“For us in ICT, this particular program is important, because when you look at the statistics there is a big gender divide in the world of ICT. The training programme will also empower the 1,000 girls with ICT skills and knowledge in the knowledge economy,” the minister said.
