NITDA trains senators on e-legislature


The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) is currently training senators on usage of information technology to fast-track their legislative duties in line with global best practices, BusinessDay has learnt.

The senators, who are currently on two weeks recess, are taking advantage of their recess to key into a training platform provided by NITDA to boost their information and technological advancement that would create a better learning and performance driven legislature in exercise of their duties.

Cleopas Angaye, the director general of NITDA, said the platform was created to enable legislators perform their duties using information and communications technology as being practised in many parts of the world.

He noted that e-governance, speedy recovery of materials, archiving and retrieving of information are the areas that the senators would be guided to be able to be above board in the discharge of their duties, adding that most of the governance aspects and structures now have gone digital which would help to fast-track governance process.
