Digitalization is Key to Moving Nigeria Forward - Tinubu
President Bola Ahmed Tinubu emphasized the need for digitalization in addressing governance challenges in Nigeria. Speaking at the concluding ceremony of the 2023 Civil Service Week celebration, Tinubu highlighted the instrumental role of digitalization in moving the nation forward. He stressed the importance of a fit-for-purpose African Public Administration to succeed in the African Continental Free Trade Area (AFCFTA).

ABUJA - President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that the present governance challenges confronting the country cannot be solved with an analogue.

Tinubu stated this on Saturday at the Rewards and Recognition Ceremony/Gala Nite marking the concluding activities of the 2023 Civil Service Week celebration in Abuja.

Tinubu, represented by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, said digitalization has become a compelling choice in governance to move Nigeria forward.

He said: "The challenges we face today with governance leave no option to continue on the analogue front, that is why digitalization is a compelling choice we must make to move forward as a nation."

The President described the civil service as a fulcrum for governance, whose vision and mission are predicated on the instrumentation of policies and programs that will enhance national economic and multidimensional growth.

He added that to match the expectations of the present administration, which are very high, the civil service must up its reform initiatives.

Tinubu stated that the event was organized by the Office of the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation to appreciate the uncommon, exemplary, and commendable performances of deserving civil servants.

The annual event, according to him, was essential for the ongoing improvement in service delivery geared towards ensuring good governance, leading to the rapid socio-economic development of the country.

He explained that this is what inspired the theme for this year's Civil Service Week; "Digitalization of Work Processes in the Public Service: A Gateway to Efficient Resource Utilization and National Development."

This, he said, was very apt and further concretized the cardinal role digital technology plays in today's workspaces, especially in evolving a capable public service.

Earlier in her address, the Head of the Civil Service of the Federation, Dr. Folasade Yemi-Esan, charged all Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs) to ensure that the Rewards and Recognition Scheme (R&RS) in the Civil Service are implemented in a timely, clear, transparent, and inclusive manner, to achieve the purpose for which it was instituted.
