Isa Pantami: Nigeria's Economy Will Be 21% Digital Driven By 2021 by Epstein(m): 10:08pm On Sep 11
The Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Pantami, has predicted that the Nigerian economy would be 21 per cent digital come 2021, because digitalisation is becoming the most adopted economy globally.

The minister, while speaking at the Chartered Institute of Bankers of Nigeria’s (CIBN) 2020 Graduates’ Induction and Prize Award’s Day, said the COVID-19 pandemic has shown the importance of the digitalization in the growth of any nation’s economy.

Pantami noted that there has never been a more urgent time to fast track digital transformation in Nigeria, saying that the digital economy drive is aimed at rapidly enhancing digital identification, broadband penetration, how bank accounts are run, etc.

While stressing the need for professionals to develop more innovative digital tools and competencies, the Minister said activities in the banking, customs, and ports sectors, including revenue collections are being digitalized.

He further noted that broadband penetration at the end of July rose to over 43 per cent, an almost 10 per cent increase in less than a year. He said compared to the usual two per cent penetration witnessed in the years before, this is a remarkable step in the digital direction.

Pantami went on to disclose that the Ministry was working to ensure that indigenous digital solution providers and entrepreneurs get preference, saying that the current administration is committed to consuming what it produces. “The latest Quarter Two (Q2) 2020 report recently released by the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS), showed that the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector contributed about 17.83 per cent to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), from 13.85 per cent in the same period of 2019. “Yet, the digital economy was not included in the disclosed figure. If the digital economy was added, it would have risen well above 45 per cent to GDP,” Pantami added.

In P-square's voice: "Na Audio"

With the incessant policy changes, increase taxes Lagos is bringing up here and there, increased electricity tariff and unstable yet expensive price of internet data, we're not ready for that curve.

Some basic things needs to be in place for that digital revenue to grow. Unfortunately, we carry one step forward and three backward most times.

Going digital doesn't effectively solve the average Nigerian problems whose yearnings are simply to have the basic amenities: food, clothing and shelter. That not being resolved will render any mission a futile one.

All other countries we are emulating started from there . Our priorities should not be misplaced. That's why this one will also end as an audio policy.

A digital economy will function when the average Nigerian has the means (operational know-how and finance) to go digital.

Stop trying to 'cover a rotten Apple with a golden Foil'.

99% of politicians in this part of the world are corrupt.
We only have few good men and women among them.

But don't be suprised, He became some people role model when he became a politician tho.
Such is Life!!

Thaheer:

Walai,He used to be very vocal back then before he became a "politician"..
Sometimes that is the reason why its good to be independent
You are correct.
Politics in Nigeria is nothing but the devil's game!
