The Federal Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (FMSTI) has partnered with United States of America-based tech consulting powerhouse, Afri-Tech United, on cloud migration.

Afri-Tech United lead partner and Nigerian US-based IT expert, Mr Jacob Uwah, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja, explaining that the partnership was aimed at developing a Master Cloud Platform.

He also mentioned that the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Chief Uche Nnaji, had spent several months discussing the best approach for Nigeria’s groundbreaking transformation alongside the Afri-Tech United team, which ultimately led them to design the framework for the Master Cloud Platform.

Asserting that the partnership was a strategic move designed to catapult Nigeria into a new age of cyber sophistication and global tech leadership, Uwah added that the project is a testament to the power of collaboration, paving the way for a new era of cyber excellence.

Speaking on the initiative, the Minister stated that it aimed to modernise the infrastructure of public and private sectors, as well as revitalise the many traditional revenue-generating ventures operating in Nigeria through highly sought-after strategic partnerships.

The minister also iterated that President Tinubu administration’s goal of producing two million tech jobs each year, was central to the Afri-Tech partnership.

Nnaji further hailed what he described as the “visionary effort” of the present administration to combat unemployment and open doors to countless opportunities for Nigerian youths as highlighted by Vice President Kashim Shettima, during an earlier interview at this year’s World Economic Forum with Arise TV.”

“The Master Cloud Platform also lays the foundation for Afri-Tech United’s forthcoming Innovation Centre development,” he added.
