The federal government has selected Learning Community Managers for the 3MTT Initiative for all 36 states of the federation and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

The managers were picked for the programme by the Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy, which is handling the initiative.

Recall that the government secured N1 billion in partnership with IHS Nigeria to support the 3MTT Learning Community.

The selection of Learning Community Managers marks a significant milestone in the government’s efforts to empower Nigeria’s tech talents.

These individuals will play a crucial role in managing and assisting participants in the 3MTT programme as they leverage the learning platform designed by IHS Nigeria.

With their guidance, 3MTT participants will have the support they need to navigate the learning platform and maximise their learning experience.

As part of IHS Nigeria’s support, the company has committed to paying the salaries of the 37 dedicated learning community managers nationwide.

Additionally, access to the IHS Learning Platform will play a significant role in supporting 3MTT talent development efforts.

Expressing his excitement about the development, the Minister of Communications, Innovations and Digital Economy, Mr Bosun Tijani, said significant collaboration between the public and private sectors is required for the national digital transformation journey.

According to him, the partnership with IHS Nigeria is the first of many that will help achieve the government’s goal to make Nigeria a net exporter of tech talent, as outlined in the Strategic Blueprint.

In his remarks, the chief executive of HIS Nigeria, Mr Mohamad Darwish, said the company’s collaboration with the federal government on the 3MTT initiative aligns with President Bola Tinubu’s Renewed Hope Agenda and the Minister’s Strategic Plan.

He further stated that the initiative also aligns with one of his organisation’s sustainability pillars, saying that investing in digital skills helps to build a skilled and qualified talent pool that will stimulate job creation, innovations, business growth, and the diversification of the economy.
