The Oyo State government on Monday migrated to e-governance as Governor Abiola Ajimobi launched phase one of the state’s e–initiative.
He directed Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) to embrace the new initiative with immediate effect.
Launching the initiative at the state’s ICT centre, Ajimobi said it was imperative to increase productivity, efficiency and service delivery to move the state forward.
The governor noted that this led to the immediate automation of government’s system.
He said: “Oyo State is migrating from paper governance to e-governance. Our vision is for our state to be the technology hub of the country and we need to start from within. People might say it is impossible, but we are dreaming big and ready to walk the talk.
“All MDAs should embrace this initiative as from today, and we are ready to back it up with the all necessary infrastructure to make it work. It is a that to survive in this modern day, you must be technology compliant.
“As from today, we want a fast, efficient and result-oriented civil/public service in Oyo State. Information is key as well as knowledge; the ability to manipulate the knowledge is our today and tomorrowfor a better Oyo state.”
