Digital Nigeria

Empowering Nigerians through the Digital Nigeria Programme.

His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, launched the Digital Nigeria Programme on the 19th of March, 2020 as one of the Federal Government’s key initiatives that will empower innovators and entrepreneurs with skills required to thrive in our emerging digital economy.

In furtherance to this, the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, FNCS, FBCS, FIIM, is promoting options for digital training for Nigerians. This is especially important at a time when the world stays home to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy is partnering with a number of institutions to enable Nigerians to acquire cutting-edge digital skills within the comfort of their homes. One such partnership is based on the MoU signed with IBM on the 16th of January, 2020.

Through this partnership and as part of the IBM Digital Nation Africa programme, the Ministry will be providing Nigerians with over 280+ hours of free learning & 85+ courses on key emerging technologies like:

  • Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, and Cloud Comp

Nigerians are encouraged to register today at Users can also access the programme through the “IBM Digital Nation Africa” App on Google Play Store. The Ministry will be sharing similar opportunities in the coming days on its social media pages, website, and on

These programmes will include training courses provided as a result of our collaborations with the following partners:

  • African Development Bank (Coding for Employment programme)
  • Huawei (ICT Academy Telecom and Information Technology Skills programme)

The Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy is committed to developing the capacity of Nigerians to use technology to solve problems. We will also deploy technology to limit the disruption to education and the economy caused by COVID-19. Through the Digital Nigeria programme we will empower Nigerians to develop skills and build innovative solutions to tackle challenges within our community.
