Digital Economy: Powering Nigeria’s Economic Diversification.

Growing the Non-Oil Sectors and diversifying the Nigerian Economy requires strategic focus on our MSME sub-sector. With over 41 million MSMEs across Nigeria, the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) is strategically  collaborating  with the Small and Medium Enterprises Development Agency of Nigeria (SMEDAN) to provide the Digital Ecosystem that MSMEs need to learn, grow their businesses and generate economic prosperity. 

NCC is sponsoring MSMEs from across the 36 States and the FCT to take variety of courses on the SME Digital Academy and obtain Certificates of Completion endorsed by the DG-SMEDAN which form an integral part of your Business and Career documentation.    

When we educate, empower and elevate our MSMEs, more jobs will be created, leading to more income for households and families and many more communities will experience economic boom.
