The Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy (FMoCIDE)has announced a call for host organisations interested in partnering with it to activate Code Clubs in its 17 Digital Knowledge Exchange Centres spread across the country.

This is contained in a media advisory, available to the press inked by Special Adviser to the Honourable Minister of Communications, Innovation & Digital Economy, Dr. BosunTijani, on Strategic Communications Osibo Imhoitsike.

As per the media advisory, Code Club, an initiative of the FMoCIDE in partnership with Raspberry Pi Foundation, is targeted at enabling young Nigerians aged 7 to 17 years to learn a broad spectrum of coding and technology related subjects. This will be a significant step in the Federal Ministry’s journey to build a pipeline of young digital literates and innovators. The available Knowledge Exchange Centres will serve as original prototypes as the Government puts in motion its plan to expand the initiative to more locations nationwide.

“The Federal Ministry will give host organisations access to the Centres with a view to putting it to good use for the benefit of local communities. Therefore, organisations with a track record in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths) training are urged to express their interest using the link provided here: https://codeclub.fmcide.gov.ng/,” stated the FMoCIDE.
