Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Ab­dul­la­teef Salau

The Korea In­ter­na­tional Co­op­er­a­tion Agency (KOICA) has trained 1,368 Nige­rian pub­lic ser­vants from var­i­ous min­istries, de­part­ment and agen­cies on e-gov­er­nance.

KOICA Coun­try Di­rec­tor/ Re­gional Rep­re­sen­ta­tive, Sook Hyun Park, dis­closed this dur­ing the clos­ing of the 7th e-gov­ern­ment ca­pac­ity build­ing pro­gramme in Abuja.

The four-week train­ing was part of the “Project for Ca­pac­ity Build­ing of e-Gov­ern­ment in Nige­ria” that started five years ago, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment from the KOICA of­fice in Abuja.

It was or­ga­nized in part­ner­ship with the Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and the Pub­lic Service In­sti­tute of Nige­ria.

The pro­gramme was to im­prove the ef­fi­ciency and trans­parency of pub­lic ad­min­is­tra­tion through the use of ap­pro­pri­ate ICT sys­tems and pro­ce­dures.

Since 2013, the Korea gov­ern­ment ear­marked $8.56 million to sup­port de­vel­op­ment of e-gov­ern­ment in Nige­ria, through var­i­ous ca­pac­ity build­ing pro­grammes, es­tab­lish­ment of an e-Gov­ern­ment Train­ing Cen­tre and for­mu­lat­ing the first e-Gov­ern­ment Mas­ter for Nige­ria in col­lab­o­ra­tion with Min­istry of Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and other stake­hold­ers.
