History was made in Abuja at the weekend as a United States of America-based tech consulting powerhouse, Afri-Tech United, sealed a deal with the Federal Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (FMSTI) to deliver a cloud migration initiative to the country.

The Afri-Tech United lead partner and Nigerian US-based IT expert, Mr Jacob Uwah, who disclosed this in a statement, explained that the partnership was aimed at developing a Master Cloud Platform, a strategic move designed to catapult Nigeria into a new age of cyber sophistication and global tech leadership.

Mr Uwah disclosed that the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Chief Uche Nnaji, had spent several months discussing the best approach for Nigeria’s groundbreaking transformation alongside the Afri-Tech United team, which ultimately led them to design the framework for the Master Cloud Platform.

“This project is a testament to the power of collaboration, paving the way for a new era of cyber excellence,” he said.

Speaking on the deal, Nnaji said: “This initiative aims to modernise our infrastructure, optimise public and private sectors, and revitalise many of our traditional revenue-generating ventures, through highly sought-after strategic partnerships.”

The minister also said that what was central to Afri-Tech partnership was the current President Bola Tinubu administration’s goal of producing two million tech jobs each year, adding that “the visionary effort to combat unemployment and open doors to countless opportunities for Nigeria’s youth was highlighted by Vice President Kashim Shettima, during an earlier interview at this year’s World Economic Forum with Arise TV.”

Chief Nnaji added that, “The Master Cloud Platform also lays the foundation for Afri-Tech United’s forthcoming Innovation Centre development.”
