FG’s 3MTT Program Surpasses 1 Million Applications in Record Time. In a recent update, the Minister of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy, Dr. Bosun Tijani, revealed that the Federal Government’s ambitious Three Million Technical Talent (3MTT) program has received over one million applications. This surge in interest demonstrates the strong demand for technical skill development in Nigeria.
Dr. Tijani assured that the government is actively working on firming up the program’s plans and will soon announce the next steps for applicants.
The next phase of the 3MTT program will be unveiled within the next 12 hours, according to a post by Dr. Tijani on X. The post also included some key statistics: 1,001,457 total trainees, 18,644 total providers, and 1,407 total partners.
The 3MTT program is a critical component of the Renewed Hope agenda, with the primary objective of strengthening Nigeria’s technical talent pool to drive its digital economy and position Nigeria as a source of skilled talent.
The program’s implementation will occur in three phases, with the first phase accommodating 30,000 individuals, followed by the second phase admitting 300,000, and the ambitious goal of training three million people in the third phase.
The initiative is executed in collaboration with the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) and involves multiple stakeholders, including fellows, training providers, partners, and placement organizations.
During the first phase, the government will select individuals interested in specific technical skills and fund their training in partnership with approved training providers.
The 3MTT program represents a significant step forward in equipping Nigerians with the skills needed for the digital age, and it holds great promise for the nation’s future in the global technology landscape.
