A United States-based tech consulting powerhouse, Afri-Tech United, sealed a major deal with the Federal Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (FMSTI) to deliver a monumental cloud migration initiative to the country.

The Afri-Tech United lead partner and Nigerian US-based IT expert, Jacob Uwah, who disclosed this in a statement, explained that the partnership is aimed at developing a Master Cloud Platform, a strategic move designed to catapult Nigeria into a new age of cyber sophistication and global tech leadership.


Uwah disclosed that the minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Uche Nnaji, had spent several months discussing the best approach for Nigeria’s groundbreaking transformation alongside the Afri-Tech United team, which ultimately led them to design the framework for the Master Cloud Platform.

“This project is a testament to the power of collaboration, paving the way for a new era of cyber excellence,” he said.

An ostensibly excited Minister Nnaji said: “This initiative aims to modernise our infrastructure, optimise public and private sectors, and revitalise many of our traditional revenue-generating ventures, through highly sought-after strategic partnerships.”


The minister also said that what was central to Afri-Tech partnership is the current President Bola Tinubu administration’s goal of producing two million tech jobs each year, adding that “the visionary effort to combat unemployment and open doors to countless opportunities for Nigeria’s youth was highlighted by Vice President Kashim Shettima, during an earlier interview at this year’s World Economic Forum with Arise TV,” where he stated that “230 million people, 75 per cent, are below the age of 30 We need to change the dynamics, come to terms with global realities and position our nation in its rightful place in the comity of nations.”


Chief Nnaji also said: “The Master Cloud Platform also lays the foundation for Afri-Tech United’s forthcoming Innovation Center development. The vision extends beyond Nigeria’s existing technology centres and is designed to leverage hyper-scaler partnerships, offering Nigerian engineers unparalleled access to machine learning, artificial intelligence, and robotics, something that is yet to be seen in the country.


“We’re investing in more than technology; we’re investing in Nigeria’s future.


“As a country, we are ready to set the global standard, showing the world that Nigeria is leading the cyber renaissance, not just participating in it.”


Afri-Tech United with headquarters in Seattle, WA, leads the charge in African innovation and advancement, driven by a vision of unity and empowerment.


It is a vibrant consulting firm with extensive partnerships throughout the continent with the fundamental goal to unite and empower local communities by providing access to resources that can drive transformative change.
