The Nigerian Computers Society (NCS) says information technology (IT) is a veritable tool that will springboard the economy to quick recovery from backwardness caused by COVID-19 pandemic.
The hint was dropped recently by the President of NCS Prof Adesina Sodiya while speaking to newsmen in Lagos
The Don charged both the public and private sector players in the economy to make capital out of IT facilities to ratchet up boost productivity to overcome the debris caused by coronavirus.
He said: “IT is critical to enabling economic recovery and growth as well as achieving sustainable development. All who desire progress should work with NCS to recognise, honour and reward those that are doing great work. The society not just NCS should reward them for their impact, service and untiring efforts.
“We must encourage those in our environment who are using their knowledge, creativity and resourcefulness to develop local tech solutions that are so essential to the drive for socio-economic, growth, recovery and development.
