Ministry adopts electronic management system
The Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Communications, Musa Istifanus, has revealed that the Ministry would adopt electronic management systems in the work place, to create higher level of transparency and efficiency in its operations and service delivery.
He said this during the inauguration of the Ministerial SERVICOM and Anti-Corruption and Transparency Committees, by the National Coordinator, SERVICOM, Mrs. Nnenna Akajemeli, and the Chairman of Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission, Prof. Bolaji Owasanoye represented by Olayinka Aiyebayo, respectively.
Addressing the management and the committee members, Istifanus pointed out that civil servants must deliver satisfactory services so that the citizens can feel the impact of service delivery.
He noted that the period of hiding files would soon be over because the Ministry has concluded plans to put files into electronic forms to end the era of carrying papers and files about.
He said: “The Ministry of Communications has already started work on the electronic management systems and I believe that by the time we are done, there is no way any staff can leave anything on his/her table for more than 24 hours in line with extant rules.
“I am willing to support all the staff in providing them with the required working tools as the Ministry has concluded plans to provide computers and laptops for staff which will also enable the newly inaugurated SERVICOM and Anti-Corruption and Transparency Unit (ACTU) Officers to have computers for the effective delivery of their duties and give feed back to the management for necessary action.”
