Microsoft Corporation has expressed its willingness to partner with the Nigeria Digital Identification for Development project in the areas of capacity development and data protection.
The Microsoft Government Affairs Lead, Nonye Ujam, disclosed this during a working visit to the Nigeria ID4D project office in Abuja.
A statement signed by the Manager, Communications, Nigeria ID4D, Dr. Walter Duru, said, “We are here to ensure that we support you to make things work very well. We are happy with the achievements Nigeria ID4D has recorded in such a short period. “Microsoft Corporation has made a lot of investments and interventions in capacity development and cyber security. Beyond supporting governments in the area of capacity development, Microsoft meets their stakeholders where they are, hand-hold and close identified gaps.
“As people are working hard to upgrade and update themselves, that is how hard the bad players are working to update their skills. This is why we must take data protection and cyber security very seriously.”
The Project Coordinator, Nigeria Digital Identification for Development, Musa Solomon, stated, “We are open to collaborating with as many relevant stakeholders as possible to ensure that the project succeeds. We want the capacity of ecosystem implementing partners enhanced.”
