The National Emergency Management Agency NEMA is seeking for support and stronger collaboration with National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) in the use of ICT Infrastructure and digital platform for managing disaster.

This was the discussion when the Director General and Chief Executive Officer, NITDA, Mallam Kashifu Inuwa Abdullahi, received Director General of NEMA, Mustapha Habib Ahmad, in his office.

Mallam Abdullahi said NITDA as government’s apex IT regulatory body was developing ICT in Nigeria, which would benifit NEMA.

He described NEMA’s operations as one that required the application of modern technology.

In his part, the Director General of NEMA said the visit was to further intimate NITDA management on his Agency’s statutory mandate and seek for collaborative support between the two agencies.
