Omobola Johnson, minister of communications technology, will on Tuesday, April 16 launch the Federal Government Service Portal in Abuja as part of the initiatives for ‘Getting Government Online’ to improve service delivery to citizens.
This is in accordance with the ministry’s mandates centred on deploying information and communications technology to drive transparency in governance and improve the quality of public service delivery.
The primary objective of deploying the government service portal, an initiative of the ministry of communications technology, according to a statement made available by the special adviser on media to the minister, Efem Nkanga, was to create an easy and single point of entry for Nigerians and other stakeholders to access government services online.
The services portal which was built using the latest web technology brings together a directory of existing online government services, as well as newly automated services from the ministries of industry, trade and investment, agriculture, education, health and communications technology.
