Akwa Ibom set to establish e-Labour Data Bank
To set Akwa Ibom State on the vantage position for a robust post COVID-19 economy, the government has approved the establishment of an e-Labour Data Bank to aid strategic manpower planning.
This was disclosed by the Commissioner of Information, Mr. Charles Udoh.
Udoh said the State Executive Council had resolved to make available relevant information on indigenous manpower composition in the state for proper economic planning.
“One of the issues we decided on was the setting up of Akwa Ibom e-Labour Data Bank, a unique labour information and mailing system for collation of data of skilled and unskilled unemployed Akwa Ibom State indigenes. Data of indigenes employed in Federal Ministries, Departments and agencies, MDAs, would also be collated…
“The idea is for us to have the information at our fingertips to enable us take economic decisions, especially when it has to do with manpower planning.”
He added that to actualise government’s vision of “Power For All By 2021Initaitive,” a list of villages and communities without electricity had been collated to enable government work towards restoration of electricity in such communities.
Udoh said the meeting accorded the Council opportunity to be updated with activities of the Ministry of Health towards mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic, review of ministerial responsibilities, as well as receive updates on ongoing projects by MDAs.
