Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Si­mon Echewo­fun Sun­day

The Nige­rian Elec­tric­ity Reg­u­la­tory Com­mis­sion (NERC) has won an award for mak­ing public its ac­tiv­i­ties us­ing its so­cial media plat­forms.

The Out­stand­ing Public Sec­tor Web­site in Nige­ria award, tagged ‘Web Ju­rist Awards’ was given in Abuja on Tues­day by lead­ing man­age­ment con­sult­ing Phillips Con­sult­ing.

Re­ceiv­ing the award, NERC Chair­man, Dr Sam Amadi, rep­re­sented by the Head, In­for­ma­tion Tech­nol­ogy (IT) unit, Mr. Ab­dul­lahi Adamu lauded the firm for its spe­cial­ity in in­for­ma­tion se­cu­rity as­sur­ances, IT man­age­ment and train­ing, as well as in e-busi­ness de­vel­op­ment.


A state­ment by Dr Us­man Arabi, Head of NERC’s Public Af­fairs, said the award process fol­lowed a de­tailed eval­u­a­tion of public sec­tor web­sites bro­ken into five cat­e­gories, namely Aes­thet­ics, Tech­ni­cal As­pects, Web­site Con­tent, User Ex­pe­ri­ence and Per­for­mance.

It was based on this premise that NERC won the ‘Web Per­for­mance’ cat­e­gory that eval­u­ated the over­all per­for­mance of the site, mea­sur­ing such crit­i­cal met­rics as the ex­tent to which the web­site has been op­ti­mized, tak­ing cog­nizance of the speed at dis­play and avail­abil­ity, and also on pop­u­lar­ity.

Philips Con­sult­ing is a lead­ing con­sult­ing firm serv­ing clients across Africa through of­fices in La­gos, Abuja and Johannesburg, South Africa.
