The Head of Personnel Management of Warri South Local Government Council, Mr. Augustine Akaeze, has identified lack of adequate knowledge of Information Communication Technology, frequent power outages, unimproved digital connectivity, digital skill gap, inadequate connectivity to the broadband infrastructure in rural areas, cyber security or cyber-attack and poverty, as challenges inhibiting youths across Nigeria for maximizing the opportunities of digital economy.

 

Mr. Akaeze, brought the challenges to the fore Wednesday May 15 at the Warri South Council Lodge in Warri, when he hosted participants of the Senior Executive Course, SEC 46, 2024 of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, NIPSS, Kuru, Jos, who were on a study tour of Warri South Local Government Area.

 

Whilst noting that digital economy has become big market place, where goods are bought without boundaries, thereby providing enabling services and advancing brands, the Warri South Council Administrator, opined: “For Nigeria youthful workforce to be gainfully employed and flourish, government has a very important role to play.”

Air Vice Marshall Solomon, who noted that the Presidency gave them the theme: “Digital Economy, Youth Empowerment and Sustainable Job Creation: Issues, Challenges and Opportunities”, for the research work, explained: “Delta State was selected as one of the states to conduct research on and see how Delta State is aligning with this theme and how their government makes improvements in these areas. We were posted to Warri to also see what the local government, which is closer to the people is doing in relation to the theme.”
