The Nigerian Communications Commission CEO Umar Danbatta has urged Nigerian youths not to sell the laptops given to them by the federal government.

Mr Danbatta was quoted in a statement by NCC spokesman Ikechukwu Adinde at the North-West two-week training organised by the commission.

“I also urge you to resist the temptations to sell the laptops and other IT tools you are going to be provided with,” Danbatta told the participants.

“The training has provided for you useful skills, which you have acquired to earn a living for yourself without necessarily relying on the government to give you a job. Our hope at NCC is that you will apply the skills appropriately and impact your friends and associates,” the statement quoted him to have stated. “We, therefore, express our profound appreciation to President Muhammadu Buhari and our ministry for doing this particular training, which is a practical demonstration of one of the important pillars of the NDEPS 2020-2030, possible.”

Mr Danbatta urged the Nigerian youths to put skills acquired and the ICT tools received during the nationwide digital literacy training exercise to appropriate and legitimate use.

The training, he said, is a brainchild of the commission, held across each of the six geo-political zones of the country. The NCC boss added that implementing the recommendations of the committee of experts, as approved by the government, gave rise to the training, which targets 1,000 Nigerian youths to be digitally trained for self-employment.

“It is consistent with this important policy of President Buhari. The board of the NCC, two years ago, set up a committee of experts chaired by the former chairman, Ernest Ndukwe, to develop modalities and syllabus for the digital training of youths across the six geo-political zones of the country,” he added.
