Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami assumed duty as the substantive Director General/CEO of the National Information Technology Development Agency, (NITDA) following the announcement by the Federal Government on Monday the 26th of September 2016, appointing him as the Director General of NITDA.
In a brief reception held in his honour, Dr. Isa Ali expressed his gratitude towards the reception he received from the outgoing acting DG, Vincent Olatunji, PhD and other members of staff.
Dr. Pantami promised to consolidate on the achievements the Agency has recorded over the years, adding that what is important to him is to see how Nigeria can explore the potentials of ICT for National development.
He said, “What is important to us is Nigeria and I am here to work together with you as a team to achieve the vision of the Agency”.
Earlier in his welcome address, the outgoing Ag. DG stated that NITDA is one big family and assured him of the cooperation of all staff.
Dr. Olatunji informed him that the Agency might be small in structure but broad in mandate, adding that Dr. Pantami’s coming cannot be at a better time than now, when the nation needs to leverage on ICT as alternative to oil to diversify the economy.
