Gov. Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra on Wednesday distributed 200 sets of computers and laptops worth over N100 million to civil servants to digitalise civil service and drive electronic government.
Soludo who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Solo Chukwulobelu, at the flag-off ceremony organised by the state ICT Agency in Awka, said that digital operations had tremendous potential for the public sector.
Soludo said the state economy and affairs would be run more effectively through Information and Communications Technology initiatives as obtained in developed countries.
The distribution of ICT tools to civil servants is a policy that began three years ago to facilitate e-Government and keep pace with global best practices.
Soludo, however, urged civil servants to adopt ICT in order to serve citizens better. He also advised the State ICT Agency to hold regular training for the civil servants on how to use the ICT equipment.
Also speaking, Mrs Theodora Igwegbe, Head of Service, said that the digitisation of operations of the civil service was a step toward actualising the Anambra State Civil Service Strategy and Implementation plan.
In his remarks, Mr Chukwuemeka Agbata, the Managing Director, of Anambra State ICT Agency, said the agency had begun ICT revolution in the state in line with Gov. Soludo’s e-Government and smart mega-city policy.
