The Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, Dr Isa Ali Ibrahim Pantami has reiterated the importance of possessing skills rather than a paper qualification to thrive in the 21st-century labour market.

The Communications and Digital Economy Minister made this assertion in Abuja on Wednesday, while addressing participants during the closing ceremony of the Digital Job Creation Capacity Development Programme.

Which was organized for Nigerian youths by the Ministry as part of an effort to enhance digital skills in line with the National Digital Economy Policy and Strategy for a Digital Nigeria.

The Honourable Minister said, “Digital skills today is not optional but rather it is a necessity”. Adding that, the digital economy is dominating the world and making the traditional economy very irrelevant.

Pantami further called on the participants to be problem-solvers, utilize the skills that have acquired to propose disruptive solutions that can change the world, stressing that Nigerians are highly creative and innovative.

The Highlight of the day was the presentation of laptop computers and cash stipends to all the over 100 participants selected based on merit to enable them to build on the skills they have acquired and become job providers, rather than job seekers.
