E-platforms behind TSA’s success story — NCS


Lagos – The Nigeria Computer Society (NCS) on Thursday said the N3 trillion realised in 2015 by the Federal Government via the Treasury Single Account (TSA), was a major achievement for the IT industry.

Mr Rogba Adeoye, the Chairman, NCS Education and Manpower Development Committee, disclosed this in an interview with the
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos.

“There is an improvement on that of the previous year with the deployment of more e-platforms that aided the TSA.

“It (the technological platforms) helped government to at least give the situation of the funds at real time,’’ Adeoye said.

He, however, said that to achieve more this year, all stakeholders involved should put their heads together, to make that a reality.

Adeoye, therefore, urged the National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) to improve on its services, so as to boost and secure government activities.

“It should put in place the infrastructure that will enable them to identify cases of hacking of government websites.

“It must provide facilities for infrastructure protection, development and security,’’ he said.

Adeoye also called on NITDA to look into the framework that was available in its offices that enabled it to conduct security checks every three years.

He said the facility would enable NITDA to forestall any form of hacking or abuse of government websites.

Adeoye, therefore, urged the Federal Government to employ enough consultants and IT experts that would aid NITDA in achieving the mandate given to it.

He said that the appointment of IT professional into the Boards of the Ministries, Departments and Agencies would maximise and deepen the benefits of electronic governance and digital transformation in the country.

Adeoye also stressed the need for government to mandate the NCS, in collaboration with NITDA, to supervise all IT projects. (NAN)
