FRONTLINE publishing house, eBusiness Life has announced the partnership for its International Girls in ICT Day 2016 with the Nigerian Communications Commission and MTN Nigeria, reports DigitalREALMS.

 Editor of the publication, Mr. Chidebere Nwankwo, in a press statement made available to DigitalREALMS newsroom, quoted the chief executive officer, eBusiness Life Communication, Mrs. Ufuoma Emuophedaro, as saying the event underscores awareness among young girls on the need to embrace careers in Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).

She also said that the Nigerian telecom regulator, NCC and dominant telecom operator, MTN has indicated their interest to be part of this year’s campaign, scheduled to hold in Lagos on April 28, 2016 at the Lagos Oriental Hotel, the fifth since eBusiness Life joined the annual campaign in 2012. She stressed that the initiative is part of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) programmes geared at sensitizing young girls and encouraging them to take up Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as a career.

The NCC, she said, has consistently partnered with eBusiness Life in driving this campaign since inception as part of the regualtor’s readiness to enter into strategic alliances with the private sector as well as international organizations for the actualization of the ICT vision. In addition, she said, NCC collaboration would spur development of human capital in the country with emphasis on creating and supporting a knowledge-based economy. On the other hand, she said, MTN’s support is borne out of the quest to ensure that the Nigerian girl child is presented with all options available in shaping her career and ensuring that the profession of ICT is demystified among females.

The company has consistently engaged in development of human capital through various initiatives, including thi spartnership with eBusiness Life as one of such vehicles that will help the operator achieve its goals.
