The Director-General, National Information Technology Development Agency, Kashifu Inuwa, has lamented the low-level participation of women entrepreneurs in technology innovation and development.
This was as he promised to ensure that no stone is left unturned towards mainstreaming women tech entrepreneurs into the nation’s digital innovation and technology development.
Inuwa made the remarks at the opening of the Female Tech Founders Training programme at the National Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, held in Abuja.
Inuwa, who was represented at the event by the acting Director of Digital Literacy and Capacity Development, NITDA, Amina Magaji, says it was encouraging that over 7,000 Women Tech Founders registered to participate in the training programme within two weeks.
