The Computer Professionals Registration Council of Nigeria has thanked the Nigerian government for leveraging on information communication technology ICT, to enhance governance in the country.

President of the Council, Professor Charles Uwadia gave the commendation while speaking to Journalists, on Thursday, soon after he led members of the Council on a congratulatory visit to President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He thanked President Buhari for supporting the ICT industry in the past four years.

“We IT professionals believe this is the appropriate time to come and pay homage to the President and then to thank him for all he did for the IT industry and profession in the last four years.

“We thank him immensely for leveraging on the powers of IT; ICT in nation building and then of course exhort hm of what needs to be done more, since we are talking of the next level agenda, which we believe would require much more leveraging on the ICT to diversify the economy, fight corruption and then of course insecurity and ensure that we have a more secure environment in the nation,” he said.

Professor Uwadia used the opportunity to caution those who were in the habit of using the social media to ferment trouble.

“Well, the social media is a making of the all-embracing open IT landscape but with the openness we expect responsibility; both personal and group responsibility so that we can have a collective good of everybody.

“Of course we do know that the social media is already being misused, we are all very familiar with the incidents of fake news but having said that, there is more good in the social media than bad so while we are dealing with those who are creating the bad image, I think we should just keep on doing all we need to do to make sure tat social media delivers the much value needed by humanity, not just Nigerians but humanity generally,” Prof. Uwadia advised.

The Computer Professionals Registration Council was in the State House, to commiserate with President Muhammadu Buhari on his re-election last year, as Nigerian leader.
