The National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy (NDEPS) has been developed in line with the Presidential directives given to the Honourable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami, on assumption of office.
Nigerians are a highly innovative people and a thriving digital economy will create employment opportunities for Nigeria's teeming population and lift millions of Nigerians out of poverty.
Digital technologies are transforming every aspect of modern life and the NDEPS will enable Nigeria to take advantage of them in order to become a leading player in the global digital economy and provide a catalyst to facilitate the diversification of the economy and the attainment of the key national objectives of improving security, reducing corruption and expanding the economy.
The pillars of the NDEPS have been carefully selected to include all the key aspects that Nigeria needs to focus on in order to actively participate in the global digital economy. Special consideration has also been given to the nation's areas of strength and comparative advantage as a country.
