Beneficiary of Code Plateau program initiated by PICTDA Shared testimony

Beneficiary of the Code Plateau training initiated by the Director General, Plateau state Information and communication development Agency PICTDA Mr. David Daser has being of great impact to the development of the state and Nigeria at large through it’s programme.

Mr Pofi Abel Amos who is one of the beneficiary of the Code Plateau program initiated by PICTDA , also an indigene of Plateau State shared this testimony

“I started out learning to write code as self-thought, which was quite tasking and self-driven. A major challenge for me was not having a Laptop of my own which made me approach my father hoping he would help out by buying me one – but then he felt instead of buying me one, he would rather borrow me one, with the condition that within a given time frame, I would have saved up enough to buy my own. Hopefully, with my interest at heart, he felt it would make me focused.”

Pofi said “Since I joined the Code Plateau Community, the entire experience has been overwhelming, so much I had to suspend my NYSC service year till after the entire training, and I must say a big thanks to the Governor of Plateau State in the person of Barr. Simon Bako Lalong, to PICTDA, and the Chief Sorcerer himself Mr. Daser David for the inexhaustive support they have rendered to us all here at the community and to me personally for gifting me a new laptop to support my career in tech and also for securing me a Job at Abuja to resume alongside my NYSC service year”.

He also stated that “Code Plateau is such an opportunity for anyone who wants to start out in the tech world. It is quite challenging no doubt but then to anyone that might be in a similar situation, I would say don’t use your limitations as a reason to not take a bold step towards your dream. “
