The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has commenced the digital literacy and skills programme for the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

According to a statement from NITDA, the Digital States Programme (DSP) is designed as one of the implementation strategies of the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy for a Digital Nigeria.

The scheme is aimed at equipping Nigerian youths with the necessary digital literacy skills that can facilitate Nigeria’s transition to the Digital Economy.
