Minister of Communications, Barr Adebayo Shittu, has revealed that federal government has set up a National Digital Literacy Council (NDC) to drive the digitization campaign and facilitation in the country.

In an interview, he said the council would drive the process of encouraging Nigerians to love digitisation and to love ICT “which is one thing that will eventually become the soul of business in this country.”

While stressing that “ICT is like electricity, you don’t see electricity but you feel it,” he argued that “Without electricity no other sector can survive,” Shittu argued that “In the same vein, ICT is one enabler of every other facet of development at the national level, local level, even at the personal level. So, this digitisation council is to ensure that everybody keys to it.

“We are looking at a situation within one or two years, various files in offices will disappear and digitisation will take over instead of people piling up files, all that they have is their I-pad and computers.
