The President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration is partnering with the tech giant, Microsoft, to accelerate Nigeria’s move towards a more digital economy in line with the Economic Sustainability Plan.

According to a statement by presidential spokesman, Laolu Akande, in a dual announcement by both the Federal Government and Microsoft Corporation, no less than 5 million Nigerians would benefit from a digital upskilling programme.

He said the partnership with Microsoft Corporation anchored on connectivity, skilling and digital transformation followed discussions between both parties led by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, and Microsoft President Brad Smith earlier in the year.
