The Computer Guild of Nigeria (CGN) has warned the current Minister of Communication, Adebayo Shittu not to erode the information and communication technology (ICT) industry with childish and puerile projects he is fondly associated with.

The National President of the Guild, Mr. Wole Adedoyin said this in Ibadan after the first meeting of the Guild to unveil it’s 2018 projects.

According to Adedoyin, who is also the national coordinator of “Information Technology Writers Association of Nigeria (ITWAN), we prayed the Minister begins this year with laudable ICT projects.

“Last year was a disaster in the industry, not much was recorded. We in the sector know this compared to Mobolaji Johnson’s tenure when she was then in the same shoes.

“We are all aware that two projects forwarded to the country’s National Executive Council (NEC) during one of their Council’s meetings which were brought forward by the Minister were shamefully rejected by them”

“We had once written to the President to reshuffle the ministry and take Barrister Shittu to where he belongs but the President refused to heed to our call.”
