The GGA made this known on Thursday, May 30, at a press conference to assess President Tinubu’s first anniversary. The conference was attended by Legit.ng.

In his address, the convener, Mahmoud Abubakar, said:

“The Good Governance Advocates agree with the position of the Honourable minister that digital literacy means something other than that you have become a technical talent. However, it gives you the foundation to choose that you also want to participate in the digital economy.
“The steps taken in this direction are commendable and in line with the Renewed Hope Agenda of the Bola Ahmed Tinubu's administration.
“The Good Governance Advocates recognises the efforts of the NCC in promoting indigenous content in the telecommunications sector. This is in line with the provisions of the Nigerian Communications Act (NCA) 2003, which empowers the NCC to encourage local and foreign investments in the Nigerian communications industry, introduce innovative services and practices as well as promote the participation of Nigerians in the ownership, control and management of communications companies and development of communications manufacturing and supply sectors."
