1,368 public servants get e-government training
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.
