Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu, has flagged off the Women ICT Training Empowerment Programme organized by her pet project, Renewed Hope Initiative.

The five-day training which is in collaboration with the National Information Technology Development Agency NITDA is specifically designed for Women in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The First Lady, who was represented by her Senior Special Adviser on Policy, Strategy and Logistics, Wahab Alawiye-King, noted that digital literacy is the way the world is going.

She, therefore, urged women to make good use of the opportunity of training to improve their knowledge.

Mrs Tinubu pointed out that Information Technology can be used as a one-stop shop for economic growth and emancipation.

She restated her determination and commitment to transform the lives of women in the country.

Speaking earlier, NITDA’s Director of Corporate Planning and Strategy, Dr Aristotle Onyemaechi said his organization desires to build the capacity of youth in digital literacy to enhance the economic transformation of Nigeria.

He noted that Women are pivotal to this and hoped the beneficiaries would become ambassadors of Renewed Hope Initiative and digital literacy in Nigeria.
