“NITDA’s investigations revealed that over 90% of IT projects in MDAs and other government establishments failed and more than 95% of their security is compromised," Pantami said.

He said the agency will, in conjunction with relevant agencies, investigate any project that has failed to determine the root cause of the failure and apply sanctions where necessary or to refer such cases to other relevant authorities.

The NITDA DG said the agency has begun the registration and licensing of all indigenous Information Technology (IT) contractors and service providers for the purposes of procurements, Public Private Partnerships (PPPs) and other forms of engagement with government establishments and Private Sector.

He said: “In order to curtail this and in line with the Agency’s mandate and the recent Presidential Executive Order 005 for Planning and Execution of Projects, Promotion of Nigerian Content in Contracts and Science, Engineering and Technology, as mandated by His Excellency, President Muhammadu Buhari, GCFR, the registration and licensing of IT Contractors and Service providers has become expedient.”
