The Nasarawa State Government has affirmed its commitment in training civil servants on Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
Mr Shehu Ibrahim, the DG of state Bureau for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) said that the importance of ICT to societal development could not be over-emphasised, hence the need for the state government’s commitment in that direction.
The director-general urged civil servants and other Nigerians to protect themselves against internet fraud which was common nowadays.
According to him, ICT is one of the economic development pillars to gain national competitive advantage.
He noted that ICT could improve the quality of human life because it could be used as a learning and education media.
“I want to commend his Excellency, Gov. Abdullahi Sule for giving attention to the training and retraining of civil servants for effective service delivery.
“The importance of ICT to societal development could not be overemphasised, that is why the state government is committed to the training of civil servants on ICT.
“It is in view of this that I want to advise civil servants to embrace ICT knowledge considering its importance to societal development,” he said.
Ibrahim restated the commitment of the bureau to continue to initiate good policies and programmes that would have direct bearing on the lives of the civil servants.
