Global Press Release
ACOFDC SUMMIT ‘22
USA Pavilion / Expo Dubai 2020
Minneapolis, MN & Dubai, UAE, Abuja, Nigeria— March 14, 2022 — Africa Chamber of Digital Commerce (ACOFDC) is excited to announce her partnership with the Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy, Federal Republic of Nigeria and 3air.io led by @Sandi to power the ACOFDC mesh No-code Low-Code Visual Programming technology training program in Africa( training and certification of 3.5 million African youth in the Dittofi no-code visual programming to tackle unemployment and accelerate inclusive digital economy in Africa).
African economies are bleeding jobs in every sector which is accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic. To help mitigate this challenge, the ACOFDC will during her inaugural ACOFDC Summit in the USA Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai, UAE, on the 18th of March, 2022 unveil and break ground on a Special Project on Global Remote Job Mobilization Initiative (GRJMI) to train and certify 3.5 million Africans in the Dittofi no-code (visual programming/coding) technology that will give them the capability to perform as full stack developers within the programming and software development tech sector.
Eric Kaigama, President/CEO of the ACOFDC said: “the chamber is on a mission to upskill undergraduates and graduates by leveraging the no code/low code technology to monetize the opportunities the global digital economy provides through remote jobs. Implementing this intervention will put in place a mechanism for accelerated job creation for millions of Africans and will set the continent on a trajectory to becoming more economically self-sustaining by leveraging emerging technologies and capitalizing on emerging investment opportunities”.
This allows users to assemble application processes much like how builders assemble structures. Not only does this make application development easier and more accessible to non-professional developers, but it also makes the process much faster.
The chamber is delighted to receive the confirmation of the partnership with the ministry and parastatals by the Honorable Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr. Isa Ali Ibrahim (Pantami) FNCS FBCS FIIM whose dogged passion for ICT development in Nigeria over the years has contributed to the increase in the Gross Domestic Product, (GDP) and ignited innovations, job and wealth creation in the country
With the pilot in Nigeria kickstarted with the training of the first batch of train-the- trainer in the Dittofi no-code technology , the partnership with the ministry of communications and digital economy could not have come at a better time.
