ICDL has been adopted successfully by the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) in Nigeria. To date, over 2000 FRSC staff have taken part in ICDL training and testing, including senior management. ICDL has become the standard for measuring digital skills within the FRSC. As a Government agency operating throughout Nigeria, digital skills are an essential element for all staff, whether management in Abuja or agents who are in the field on a daily basis.
The ICDL Africa team visited Nigeria in December 2015 as part of an Irish Government Trade Mission. The Trade Mission was organised by Enterprise Ireland, the Irish Government agency which supports Irish companies abroad. Given ICDL Foundation is headquartered in Ireland, it was a key opportunity for ICDL Africa to join over 30 other Irish companies in promoting business in Nigeria.
The highlight of the week for ICDL Africa was an event in which Irish Minister for Agriculture, Food, the Marina and Defence, Simon Coveney visited the Federal Road Safety Corps headquarters in Abuja to present ICDL certificates to their staff. Enterprise Ireland CEO Julie Sinnamon and Irish Ambassador to Nigeria, H.E Séan Hoy were also in attendance. The Minister spoke highly of ICDL and the importance of skills development in the workforce. He was very impressed by the achievements of the FRSC and their commitment to digital skills. The FRSC Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi was very happy to receive the delegation and expressed his desire to expand the ICDL programme within the organisation.
