Enugu State has been chosen by the federal government to be one of the states involved in the e-governance pilot training program, which is scheduled to start in the first quarter of 2024.
This was revealed on Tuesday during a courtesy call on Dr. Malachy Agbo, the Enugu State Commissioner for Human Development and Poverty Eradication, at his Enugu office by a delegation from the Federal Ministry of Communication, Innovation, and Digital Economy, led by Engr. Ekworo MalcDonald, Chief Programme Analyst, and Mrs. Oriloye Elizabeth, Principal Programme Analyst.
They claimed that one hundred federal servants would receive training on e-governance and other information technology skills as part of the pilot program, which would improve their capacity to perform their duties.
They applauded the state administration, headed by Dr. Peter Mbah, for launching the e-governance program in the state and stated that the governor’s goal was aligned with the IT training provided to civil officials.
In his opening remarks, Agbo thanked the ministry for selecting Enugu State to be one of the training’s pilot states and guaranteed that the state has training-appropriate facilities.
He emphasized that, in an effort to improve productivity and effectiveness, the state government has begun the process of converting its numerous ministries, departments, and agencies (MDAs) from manual to digital operations.
