Nigeria must move away from the shackles of dependency in telecommunications technology-DG NOTAP 

By Joseph Sunday


The Director GeneralNational Office For Technology Acquisition and Promotio  (NOTAP) Federal ministry of Science and technology Dr. DanAzumi M. Ibrahim has raised fundamental issues on the need for Nigeria to wakeup from slumber and move away from the shackles of dependency in telecommunications technology.
Speaking at a one day investigative hearing on the present status of 5G network organised by the joint Senate committee on communication, Science and Technology, ICT and Cybercrime and Primary Healthcare and Communicable Diseases he said the country cannot afford to be trailing behind the western world.He worry is that the technology that power the Nigerian economy are largely imported adding that as an agency that regulate the use of foreign technology in the country  they see the quantum of technology that comes into the country and the quantum amount of money that leaves this country in capital flight.”As a nation we have to come out with a deliberate effort to see how we will gradually remove the shackles of dependency on foreign technology consumption. “Technologies are products of research and development. We have universities, they are products of knowledge, all the technologies that should hold our economy are supposed to  emanate from our national education system, and research establishments.
“We have to as a nation strengthen our research development platforms so that we will not continue to rely of foreign technology. “We were at 3G and now 4G and we are migrating to 5G, I am telling before we get ready 6G will come. “So Nigeria as a nation we cannot continue to trail behind others, if we continue to follow them we would not develop this nation, this shackles of dependency will remain with us but as a patriotic Nigeria and whoever cares for his own country, we must have to believe that nobody will come from any part of the world to develop our nation. “The development of our nation depends on us.
He observed that following the Presentation made by the minister of communication and digital economy, the fears put forward have been allayed.He said if all the regulatory agencies believe strongly that there is no implication whatsoever for the nation, in terms of the health implications he said NOTAP will like to align.”The technology that power the Nigerian economy are largely imported, we regulate the use of foreign technology in the country and we see the quantum of technology that comes into this country and then quantum amount of money that leaves this country in capital flight”
