Nigeria is on the verge of a digital transformation that could change the lives of millions of its citizens. The 3MTT program, launched by President Tinubu and his visionary minister Dr. Tijani, is a bold and ambitious initiative that aims to equip three million young Nigerians with essential digital skills in the next three years.
This is not just a lofty goal, but a realistic and achievable one. Thanks to the unprecedented partnership with IHS Towers, the largest mobile telecommunications infrastructure provider in Africa, the 3MTT program will establish learning communities across the country, providing access to high-quality digital education, mentorship, and networking opportunities for its participants.
This is a game-changer for Nigeria’s youth and economy. The digital skills that the 3MTT program will impart are not only relevant and in-demand in today’s global market, but also crucial for unlocking the potential of Nigeria’s creative and innovative talents. By empowering millions of young Nigerians with these skills, the 3MTT program will enhance their employability and entrepreneurial prospects, creating new opportunities and jobs in the digital sector.
The 3MTT program is also a catalyst for economic growth and societal progress. By fostering a culture of innovation and creativity, the 3MTT program will enable Nigeria to harness the power of technology to solve its challenges and improve its quality of life. The 3MTT program will also contribute to building a knowledge-based economy for Nigeria, one that is driven by data, information, and intelligence.
President Tinubu deserves praise for his dedication to fulfilling his campaign promise of creating one million jobs in the digital sector. His collaboration with the private sector, especially IHS Towers, shows his unwavering commitment to empowering Nigerian youth and driving national economic development. He has shown that he is not only a leader with a vision, but also a leader with a plan.
The 3MTT program is not only transforming my life, but also the lives of many others like me. According to a recent report by McKinsey & Company, similar programs in countries like India, Kenya, and South Africa have generated over $10 billion in economic value and created over 4 million jobs in the past decade. Imagine what the 3MTT program can do for Nigeria if we all join it and support it.
If you are a young Nigerian who wants to be part of this digital transformation, I urge you to join the 3MTT program. It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire the skills that will shape your future and that of your country.
