The Chairman, Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC), in the Federal capital territory administration, FCTA, Abdullahi Candido has implored indigenous people of the FCT to embrace digital and other innovative skills.
Mr Candido says this will ensure rapid and inclusive development of the Territory.
He made the call during the foundation laying ceremony of AMAC School for the Gifted, ICT/Innovation Centre, Unguwan Hakimi Orozo, a suburb of the capital city, Abuja.
Mr Candido particularly urged FCT youths to join other Nigerians in acquiring whatever experience and innovative skills that are available within their respective domains in order not to be left behind in the scheme of things.
”Today’s world is shaped by digital knowledge, an asset that will take the council to the world,” he stated.
According to him, “We the indigenous populations here won’t allow other Nigerians to be the only beneficiaries of this place. I enjoin you to come and share whatever experience and innovative skills that are available here.
“The Igbos and Yorubas are not better than us, so we can as well partner with them, and acquire knowledge that can in turn be of use to the community he added.
