Our Event:
Another Successful Graduation Story. 

It was a great event on Friday April 12, 2022, as the Executive Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Nigerian Communications Commission, Professor Umar Garba Danbatta, ably represented   by the Director Digital Economy Engr. Austin Nwaulune and the Director General of Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN), Dr. Umaru Dikko Radda ably represented by the Director Enterprise Development and Promotion (SMEDAN) Mr. Monday Ewans, officially graduated the First Batch of Learners from the collaborative partnership of NCC/SMEDAN on the SME Digital Academy from across the 36 States of Nigeria.


Course materials were good, the mentoring approach was good, 
and working with other people via the Internet was good. The instructor 
did a good job of communicating and making it a more intimate arrangement. A lot of online courses fail because of isolation. I learned a lot.
