National Policy for Promotion of Indigenous Content to Impact Communications Sector, Nigeria’s Economy — FG

By Eyo Nsima

There are indications that the National Policy for the Promotion of Indigenous Content in the Nigerian Telecommunications Sector will impact the nation’s economy, according to the Federal Government.

In its report, obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, from the Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC’s website, the government, stated: “The National Policy for the Promotion of Indigenous Content in the Nigerian Telecommunications Sector is in line with the Nigerian government’s commitment to ensure that Nigerians become active participants in the different sectors of the economy.

“This is clearly stated in Presidential Order 005 on “Planning and Execution of Projects, Promotion of Nigerian Content in Contracts and Science, Engineering and Technology” and Presidential Executive Order 003 on “Support for Local Content Procurements by Ministries, Departments, and Agencies of the Federal Government of Nigeria”.

“This Policy addresses pertinent areas, including manufacturing, services, people, research, and development, further advancing the goal of the nation being self-sufficient in every sector of the economy.”

It also added: “Developing the capacity of Nigerians in these areas will ensure an enhanced role for Nigerians in the design and manufacture of devices and in meeting the manpower requirements in the sector. This is in line with the mandate given to the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy to actively collaborate with the private sector to create a large number of well-paying jobs for Nigerians and the government’s program to take 100 million Nigerians out of poverty over a 10 year period.”
