The Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha signed on behalf of the federal government when Huawei officials visited him in his office in Abuja.

“So far, through this training programme, about 2,000 Nigerian Youths and 1,000 federal civil servants across ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) have been trained.”

The SGF said that the first phase of the programme, which was held from 14th January-28th June 2019 led to the training of 935 participants across 101 MDAs.

Chairman/Managing Director, Huawei Technologies Company Nigeria Limited, Mr. Trevor Liu, said that the organisation has trained over 1,000 civil servants from the previous years.

Also speaking, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation (HoCSF), Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan, represented by the Permanent Secretary, Common Services Office (CSO), Mallam Ibrahim Yusuf, assured of government support to ensure the success of the collaboration.
