According to NCC, the ICT Parks would offer Innovation Labs and Digital Fabrication Laboratories (Fablabs) for use by ICT innovators and entrepreneurs to transform their ideas into products and prototypes. The parks will also provide a commercial hub for ICT capacity building and digital skills, creating employment and entrepreneurial activities while aiding smart city deployment across the Digital Industrial complex.

Executive Vice Chairman of NCC, Prof. Umar Danbatta had this to say, “The whole idea of putting these two things (i.e. skill acquisition and innovation) at the forefront of this very important initiative is to produce youths that can be self-reliant, generate employment for themselves and for other Nigerians.”
“The NCC ICT Parks Project is another move by the current leadership of the Commission to boost youth digital skills acquisition, promote innovations, provide jobs for the teaming Nigerian youth and ultimately support the overall digital economy agenda of the Federal Government.”
“Going forward, we hope to see software development, incubation, and hardware development coming out from the ICT Parks. We also hope to see innovative applications that will leverage the broadband network, which the Commission is deepening in order to socially and economically transform our communities and societies.”
