FG partners Prembly to grow creative industries talent

In order to increase the number of Nigerians employed in this vital area of the country’s economy, Prembly, a leading global provider of compliance and security technology with headquarters in Lagos, yesterday announced its partnership with the Federal Government of Nigeria to establish a “Entertainment and Creative Industries Registry.” The Vice President of Nigeria, Honorable Kashim Shettima, hosted an event where the Registry was unveiled. 

Nigeria’s creative economy is a sector that encompasses various industries such as arts, culture, music, film, fashion, and design. With its rich cultural heritage and diverse population, Nigeria has a thriving creative sector that has taken center stage both locally and internationally. This creative economy contributes significantly to the country’s GDP and job creation, making it a vital component of Nigeria’s economic growth and development.

Prembly officialsNigeria’s multibillion dollar creative economy is now both a domestic engine of job creation and economic growth as well as a worldwide phenomenon. The “Entertainment and Creative Industries Registry” initiative aims to link Nigerians with an additional 1 million jobs in industries like animation, music, arts, and film, despite current estimates putting the sector’s employment at over 4 million. In order to fully utilize Nigeria’s creative talent, the Federal Government is committed to fostering human creativity and cultural enrichment, and this effort is essential to that effort.

We look forward to bringing more of our innovative solutions to further collaborations with the public sector and the Nigerian government.”

Prembly has established itself as a leading provider of identity verification, compliance, and security solutions across emerging markets, having worked with governments, businesses, and regulatory bodies in over 40 African countries. The brand recently collaborated with the Federal Ministry of Communications, Innovation, and Digital Economy on its 3 Million Technical Talent Program (3MTT). Prembly uses its suite of compliance offerings to power identity verification and registration for the program and will be using similar tools for the new registry. This infrastructure will enable the Registry to receive, process, and verify job applicants with accuracy and speed.
