The Nigerian Computer Society (NCS) has called on the Federal Government 
to pay particular attention to the devastating impact of cyber 
criminality and terrorism in the e-commerce and electronic fund transfer 

Particularly, this will check the incidence of cyber-related crime.  
Speaking on the communiqu=C3=A9 presented at the national conference and 
annual general meeting and 30th anniversary of the NCS with the theme, 
=E2=80=9CEnabling capacities of Information Technology (IT) for sustainable 
national Development=E2=80=99=E2=80=99 (ENCITDEV 2008) held in Ogun State, the President 
(NCS), Prof. Charles Uwadia urged the government to begin training of 
civil servants in computer forensics and requested tertiary institutions 
to establish computer forensics departments for the training of more 
experts to combat internet criminality.  Uwadia reiterated that failure 
to do this might sub-optimize or even derail the 2020 goal of becoming 
one of the greatest economies of the world.
Uwadia emphasized that IT remains a critical ingredient for accelerated 
wealth creation and a tool to combat corruption in public trust, there 
is need to fortify e-commerce security and e-payment lapses to shore up 
confidence in the system.

Hr urged the government to further block legal and social loopholes 
militating against e-commerce implementation in Nigeria and concentrate 
on investing in IT infrastructural development and maintenance.
Uwadia said these would improve e-governance and the delivery of high 
quality health care through an integrated National Health Information 
System and Telemedicine.  He also added that the deployment of 
m-commerce in health is expected to enhance the longevity of Nigerians 
and expand health care delivery to the hinterlands.
