As Nigeria joins the rest of the world to commemorate the International Women’s Day, the Nigerian Communications Commission NCC has reiterated it’s commitment to promoting gender equality and inclusive participation of women in digital innovation and technology.

According to the Executive Vice Chairman of the Commission, Prof. Umar Garba Danbatta, inclusion of women in leadership, has contributed in commensurate organic growth to the nation, hence development of any nation will be incomplete without the participation and contributions of women.

Danbatta stressed the need to encourage women and girls to partake of the innovative digital opportunities available to them to improve their lives and skills in line with the theme of the celebration tagged ‘DigitALL: Innovation and Technology for Gender Equality’’.

“Today, gender inclusiveness in the Commission’s affairs permeates all cadres and disciplines.

“About fifty percent of the Commission’s Management team is made up of women who have distinguished themselves, and demonstrated capacity, capability and desirability to contribute to the success of the Commission in promoting and sustaining the growth of the telecoms sector’, he said.

The International Women’s Day is a celebration held annually on the 8th of March to celebrate women around the world.
