NITDA to present National e-Government Framework at 2014 e-Nigeria conference


ABUJA – The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), on Thursday, said it would present the National e-Government framework at the e-Nigeria 2014 conference scheduled to hold in Abuja.

This is contained in a statement issued by NITDA’s Acting Head of Public Affairs, Mrs Hadiza Umar, made available on Thursday in Abuja.

The statement quoted Umar as saying the conference would take place from Nov. 18 to Nov. 20 at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja.

She stated that the theme of the conference was: “Creating Market Opportunities for Indigenous ICT Products and Services.’’

e-Government is the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to improve the activities of public sector organisations and thus provide better public services to citizens and businesses.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that e-Nigeria is a Federal Government’s annual international IT conference to leverage on current developments in the global IT industry for socio-economic development in Nigeria.

The NITDA statement quoted the Agency’s Head of Corporate Strategy and Research, Dr Vincent Olatunji, as saying that the 2014 edition would be “unique.’’

He said “one unique thing that will differentiate e-Nigeria 2104 from previous editions is the delivery of the Nigeria e-Government Framework by South Korean officials who are partnering with the Federal Government.

“The South Koreans have been helping to develop the framework in the last one year. Now, it is time to officially hand it over to Nigerians through NITDA at e-Nigeria 2014.’’

Olatunji added that NITDA would use the conference to reward e-Governance efficiency and productivity.

The conference would be attended by President Goodluck Jonathan, while renowned Nigerian lead concept, Chevrolet Volt electric car designer, Jelani Aliyu, would deliver the keynote address. (NAN)
