The Federal Government will adopt electronic management systems in work place to create higher level of transparency and efficiency in its operations and service delivery.
The Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Communications, Mr. Musa Istifanus revealed this during the inauguration of the Ministerial SERVICOM Committee and Anti- Corruption and Transparency Unit by the National Coordinator (SERVICOM).
He pointed out that civil servants must deliver satisfactory service so that the citizens can feel the impact of service delivery.
He stated that the period of hiding files would be over soonest because the Ministry has concluded plans to put files into electronic forms to end the era of carrying papers and files about.
“The Ministry of Communications has already started work on the electronic management system and I believe that by the time we are done, there is no way any staff can leave anything on his/her table more than 24 hours,” he said.
Charging the ministry officials of the SERVICOM unit, he said, “As you are being inaugurated, please if you see anything tell me if you would not tell me, tell them (ICPC) so that they can send their people to come and harass us. You know by harassing us we will then be more careful at doing things.”
The National Coordinator, SERVICOM, Mrs. Nnenna Akajemeli said SERVICOM is an initiative of the Federal Government which means service compact with all Nigerians.
“As a Ministry that regulates, there is the need to begin to see those regulatory standard impacts positively on lives of Nigerians.”
