Vice-President Namadi Sambo has said the Federal Government is planning to create a Ministry of Information Technology. Sambo disclosed this on Saturday, on the occasion of the 27th Convocation ceremony of the University of Port Harcourt.

“We are currently working on the creation of a new Ministry of Information Technology to boost technology in the country,” he said.

Sambo said there was a need to create the ministry in order to tap the potential of many talented Nigerian youths in information technology.

He said education was one of the priorities of the present administration “hence its commitment to support institutions aimed at providing Nigerians with quality education.

“Nine Federal Universities are currently being constructed across the country to help educate the ever growing population,” Sambo said.

He commended the university for brazing the trail in producing “sound minded” graduates and ensuring that the country produced quality leaders for the future.

The vice president donated N3 billion on behalf of the government “for further development of the university”.

Earlier, Professor Joseph Ajienka, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, had said the university had setup an institutional capacity enhancement programme aimed at strengthening research and development.

“This programme will harness research efforts of faculties, departments and institutes and apply such research in solving the problems of the larger society,” he said.
