Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), through the Nigeria Office for Development of Indigenous Telecom Sector (NODITS) will organize the first expo to showcase indigenous content in the Nigerian telecom industry.
The event which is themed, “Stimulating the Development of Indigenous Content through Innovation and Commercialization,” will be held on Monday – Tuesday, August 1-2, 2022 at Landmark Events Centre, Victoria Island, Lagos.
NODITS was set up in 2021, as the primary vehicle for the realization of the provisions of the National Policy on the Promotion and Implementation of Indigenous Contents in the Telecommunications Sector (NPPIC).
Engr. Babagana Digima, Team Lead at NODITS, said the Expo is focused on bringing stakeholders in the communications value-chain together, and providing a platform where practicable ideas and solutions can be evolved to stimulate the demand and supply of indigenous solutions, technologies, human capacity, and skills.
“We have invited indigenous operators, manufacturers, regulators, government agencies, policymakers, innovators, influencers, industry leaders, startups, academia, and global experts to an exhibition to showcase their products and services, innovative solutions, and new technologies that will help stimulate further growth of the Nigerian digital economy.
“So far, a lot of interested companies, service providers, industry bodies, manufacturers, innovators, and government agencies have impressively confirmed participation in the exhibition and we look forward enthusiastically to having productive engagements and far-reaching resolutions, whose implementation will further advance the cause of Nigerian indigenous telecoms development,” Digima said.
