The Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) is the umbrella organization of all Information Technology professionals, interest groups and stakeholders in Nigeria, which was formed in 1978 as Computer Association of Nigeria (COAN) and later transformed into NCS in 2002 due to harmonisation with other stakeholders and interest groups, thus positioning itself as the national platform for the advancement of Information Technology science and practice in Nigeria.

He also urged for continuous support as the nation now delves into the use of IT for national safety and security, which formed the theme for this year’s national conference.

In a letter pronouncing the Presidential award sent to the Group Executive Editor, DigitalSENSE Africa Media and publishers of ITRealms, NaijaAgroNet and DigitalSENSE Business News, Mr. Remmy Nweke, the acting Executive Secretary of NCS, Mr. Iyiola Ayoola on behalf of the President, National Executive Council of NCS and the Jury, congratulated him for good job.
