Local Content Technology Fair and Round-table 2017

The event, co-sponsored by FinTrak Software, was held on the 26th of October 2017 in Abuja FCT. It was hosted by the Federal Ministry of Communications, National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Office for Nigerian Content in Information & Communication Technology and the ICT Local Content Association (ICTLOCA).

The Round-table had in attendance many distinguished dignitaries, Heads of ministries, parastatals, agencies, guest as well as stakeholders from the private sector. The Round-table session was conceived by the Council of ICT Heads in MDAs in partnership with Tech Law Development services in the furtherance of the implementation of the Executive order Number 003 on Support for Local Content in IT Procurement and clearance of IT projects in MDAs as well as other institutions of the Federal Government.  The goal is to put an end to capital flight which is weakening the naira, prevention job creation in the nation and the negative impact on the economy.

Earlier in October at a media briefing in Lagos, the Director General, National Office for Technology Acquisition and Promotion, NOTAP, Dr. Dan Azumi Mohammed Ibrahim, disclosed that the agency has saved Nigeria N192bn in six years and secured about 38 patents for agencies and private researchers in six months of 2017. This was achieved through the refusal to approve importation of technologies, as well as services that could be rendered by Nigerians, which would have resulted in capital flight.

GMD FinTrak Software, Bimbo Abioye, was on hand to share the success stories of indigenous software in private and public sectors using FinTrak Software as a case study and he further expanded on how regulatory agencies can support the growth of indigenous firms as well as the IT sector. Though an indigenous company, FinTrak Software has a global footprint.
