While commenting about the certification, Tosin Ilesanmi, the Regional Director of RIg Communications said that he was excited about the certification NITDA gave the company.
According to him, the company began the process for the NITDA certification on the 15 of April 2014. He described the process as a long one.
He explained that it was necessary to go through a rigorous process to obtain IT product certification program because it would save the country from being a perennial dumping ground for pirated and low quality products. Going through such a process will also give room for the emergence of a truly regulated sector and also imbue confidence into the IT sector.
