He, in turn, dedicated the book to President Mohammadu Buhari for supporting him to be who he is today.
A compendium of digital innovation and digital economy under the present administration, the book explores how Nigeria deploys technological tools to resolve economic challenges.
It also examines the role of regulatory bodies especially the NITDA, in promoting the use of Information Technology (IT) in all spheres of Nigeria through the development of IT framework, standards, guidelines, regulations and policies, amongst other areas.
Reacting to the publication which, also captures weekly activities of his agency, Director General, NITDA, Kashim Inuwa Abdullahi, attributed his efforts in office to the influences of his Father and the Minister in his life.
Author of the Book, Mr Inyene Ibanga of the Image Merchants Promotion Limited, publishers of Economic Confidential and PR Nigeria Press Release, expressed his excitement hosting the dignitaries at the event.
He said his interest in digital economy and innovation began from his first encounter with the Minister.
That meeting, according to him, transformed him positively.
