Prof. Umar Danbatta, Executive Vice Chairman (EVC), Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has said Nigeria and other  African countries  cannot afford to fail in harnessing the full benefits of the digital culture and the fourth industrial revolution.

Danbatta said Monday while delivering his opening remarks at 7th Study Group 13 (SG 13), ongoing Regional Workshop for Africa being hosted by the NCC at the Transcorp Hilton, Abuja.

“To achieve a resilient and robust future network, standards must be developed to accommodate the evolution of new and emerging technologies. The new frontier comes with great value and potentials for humanity and so, Nigeria and indeed, Africa cannot afford to be left behind,” Danbata stated.

Danbatta, while tasking participants to come up with far-reaching resolutions, as Africa cannot afford to fail in harnessing the full benefits of the digital culture and the fourth industrial revolution, said such “resolutions will hopefully play a pivotal role at the World Telecommunications Standardization Assembly (WTSA) coming up later in the year. Danbatta affirmed that all these developments will also play significant role in achieving the new mandate for the digital economy.”

The NCC Executive Vice Chairman therefore charged participants to drive collective interest and let such collective interest be their focal point of discussion, “so that we can have networks that can handle the peculiarities of our environment, as we drive towards development and integration of new and emerging technologies on our dear continent”.
