The Federal Government has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Nokia Solutions and Networks Nigeria to upskill young Nigerians in the latest 4G and 5G radio and transmission technologies.

The partnership aims to equip Nigerians with the necessary skills to excel in the rapidly evolving telecommunications sector, according to a statement from the Nigerian Communications Commission.

The MoU was signed by the Minister of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy, Dr Bosun Tijanni, and the Executive Vice Chairman of the NCC, Dr Aminu Maida, while Nokia Nigeria was represented by its top executives.

According to NCC, under the agreement, Nokia Nigeria will establish a fully functional 5G/4G test lab at the commission’s Digital Parks, leveraging its cutting-edge radio and transmission technologies.

“This collaboration advances the vision to enhance the capacity and skill set of Nigerians by equipping them with contemporary skills and knowledge needed to adapt to the rapidly evolving telecommunications industry.

“In tune with the Ministry of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy’s goal to drive digital literacy and build a pipeline of technical talents across Nigeria, Nokia Nigeria would also set up an Entrepreneur Learning Programme, where it would deliver high-quality vocational training to 200 Nigerian students chosen from across the six geopolitical zones of Nigeria,” it stated.

It noted that the partnership demonstrated the Federal Government’s commitment to developing the country’s digital economy and fostering innovation in the telecommunications sector.
