The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) has said it would be more meticulous in its approval process for any IT project to be embarked upon by ministries, department and agencies (MDAs) of the Federal Government.
Director General of NITDA, Dr. Isa Pantami, who stated this after in a telephone interview with New Telegraph, said it has now become mandatory for any MDA to get requisite approval from NITDA before embarking on any IT-related projects, stressing the agency will be more stringent on the approval process by 2018.
He said the need to get NITDA sanction before such projects are carried out by the concerned MDA is not new, as such laws are already enshrined in the NITDA Act ‘only that we have not been effectively implementing the law but we are ready to be serious about that aspect of our Act now and be rest assured, we are ready to be tougher on this approval process come 2018.”
