Innovation Unleashed: Unveiling Nigeria’s Monumental Transformation

Nigerian FMSTI and tech consulting firm launch cloud migration initiative poised to modernize infrastructure, boost economy, and accelerate cyber revolution.

ABUJA, Nigeria– Mar. 31, 2024– In a historic collaboration that bridges continents, U.S.-based tech consulting powerhouse, Afri-Tech United, has teamed up with Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Science, Technology, and Innovation (FMSTI) to launch a monumental cloud migration initiative. This partnership aims to develop a Master Cloud Platform, a strategic move designed to catapult Nigeria into a new age of cyber sophistication and global tech leadership.

Hon. Minister, Uche Nnaji, spent months discussing the best approach for Nigeria’s groundbreaking transformation alongside the Afri-Tech United team, ultimately leading them to design the framework for the Master Cloud Platform. This project is a testament to the power of collaboration, paving the way for a new era of cyber excellence.

“This initiative aims to modernize our infrastructure, optimize public and private sectors, and revitalize many of our traditional revenue-generating ventures, through highly sought-after strategic partnerships” states The Minister.

Also central to this partnership, is the current administration’s goal of producing two million tech jobs each year. The visionary effort to combat unemployment and open doors to countless opportunities for Nigeria’s youth was highlighted by Vice President, Kashim Shettima, during an earlier interview at this year’s World Economic Forum with Arise TV. “230 million people. 75% are below the age of 30… We need to change the dynamics, come to terms with global realities… and position our nation in its rightful place in the comity of nations.”

The Master Cloud Platform also lays the foundation for Afri-Tech United’s forthcoming Innovation Center development. The vision extends beyond Nigeria’s existing technology centers and is designed to leverage hyper-scaler partnerships, offering Nigerian engineers unparalleled access to machine learning, artificial intelligence, and robotics, something that has yet to be seen in the country.

“We’re investing in more than technology; we're investing in Nigeria’s future,” says The Minister. “As a country, we are ready to set the global standard, showing the world that Nigeria is leading the cyber renaissance, not just participating in it.”
