The High Tech Centre (HTC) for Nigerian Women and Youths, a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), in collaboration with the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) and the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) will be hosting Information and Communications Technology (ICT) stakeholders in the country at a special forum across Nigeria.

A press statement by the President and Chief Executive Officer of HTC, Dr. (Mrs.) Wunmi Hassan, says the ICT Stakeholders forum is for all ICT enthusiasts, including those in the entertainment industry, academia, the public and private sector of the country.

The one-day stakeholders’ forum is a national discourse on how to empower and build the capacity of women and youths through ICT in a knowledge-driven economy and targets the effective and full implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

For national coverage, the forum will hold on a regional basis with Port Harcourt hosting participants from the Southern region on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 at Amadi-Ama Council of Chiefs Complex, Plot 82, Trans Amadi Industrial layout while Lagos State will host those from the South West on Thursday, July 21, at the Nigerian Internet Registration Association (NIRA) Office, Alaka, Surulere.

The City of Kaduna will host those from the Northern region on Monday, July 25, at VIP Hall, Ministry of Youths, Sports and Culture, Murtala Muhammed Square, Independent Way and in Abuja on Wednesday, July 27, at Nugget Hotel, off ABC Park Utako. All the events will commence at 9 a.m. prompt.

To take part in any of the stakeholders’ forum, which is free, participants are to register by filling a form online at or SMS your names and locations to 08060812766 or 08034241874.

The statement says: “HTC has been championing the course of women and youths in the country, and the stakeholders’ forum is critical because of the need for more Nigerian women and youths to become competitive and meet global challenges using ICT. The forum is also viewed as very vital for all ICT stakeholders to attend since it will further help to achieve HTC’s No. 5 objective of networking with other national, regional and international organisations.

“HTC currently has representatives in almost all states of the federation who are trained to use ICT tools and are serving as State Coordinators on its behalf. The states are: Ondo, Osun, Ekiti, Oyo and Lagos in the South West; Rivers and Cross River states in the South-South and Niger State and Abuja-FCT in the North Central Zones of Nigeria.

“Others are Sokoto, Kebbi, Kano, Kaduna, Edo, Abia, Enugu, Anambra, Imo and Plateau states.”
