NITDA extol JAMB, CAC, FIRS for effective use of ICT
A statement signed by Isa Pantami, NITDA Director General, said the commendation was necessary because the agencies met the expectations and requirements of the Executive Order signed recently by the Acting President, Yemi Osinbajo.
The executive order was on the promotion of transparency and efficiency in the business environment, designed to facilitate the ease of doing business in Nigeria through the use of ICT.
According to the statement, the agencies are the Federal Inland Revenue Service, FIRS, Joint Admission and Matriculation Board, JAMB, and Corporate Affairs Commission, CAC.
Meanwhile, the NITDA implored other agencies of government to also adopt the use of ICT for prompt service delivery, adding that the need for effective application of ICT in building a business friendly, transparent and efficient government in the country cannot be over emphasised.
