Rlg achieves NITDA certification
Rlg Nigeria has successfully completed its accreditation process and has been awarded certification from the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) to produce laptops and other ICT devices locally for government agencies.
NITDA is the clearing house for all IT projects and infrastructure development in the country. It is the prime Agency for e-government implementation, Internet governance and General IT development in Nigeria.The accreditation positions Rlg Nigeria to produce laptops and other ICT devices for government agencies.
The Regional Director of Rlg Communications (B2G West and Central Africa), Tosin Ilesanmi, expressed his excitement about the NITDA certification.
“We started the process of getting certified by NITDA on the 15th of April 2014 and it has taken us this long to get certified as a lot of processes had to be followed,” he noted.
He said a rigorous IT product certification program is a necessity as it would save Nigeria from being a perennial dumping ground for substandard and pirated products.
“It will also imbue confidence into the IT sector and allow for the emergence of a truly regulated sector,” Tosin said.
