Daily Trust - - DIGEST - By Ab­dul­la­teef Salau

The Korean In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Agency (KOICA) has trained 125 pub­lic ser­vice of­fi­cers on e-govern­ment.

The trainees were among the 22,652 Nige­rian govern­ment of­fi­cials tar­geted for the train­ing which is to be con­ducted 357 times for a 5 year pe­riod - 2013 to 2018.

“So far KOICA has trained 243 govern­ment of­fi­cials from over 83 MDAs,” said Mrs Park Sook Hyun, the Coun­try Di­rec­tor of KOICA, at the open­ing of the third in-coun­try train­ing.

The project aims to im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and trans­parency of the pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion ser­vice which is a pri­or­i­tized goal stated in the NV 20:2020, she said.

The Min­is­ter of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, Ab­dur-Ra­heem Ade­bayo Shittu de­scribed the tim­ing of the train­ing as apt, es­pe­cially now “that the fed­eral govern­ment is con­sciously mak­ing ef­forts to di­ver­sify from oil econ­omy and en­sur­ing trans­parency and ac­count­abil­ity in pub­lic ser­vice de­liv­ery and busi­ness trans­ac­tions in gen­eral.”
