Nigeria’s Ministry of Communications and Digital Economy has signed a new project agreement worth $13m with The Republic of Korea..
Korea signed the deal on Thursday in Abuja, through its grant aid agency, Korea International Cooperation Agency Office in Nigeria.
The agreement seeks to boost the e-government expansion and increase access in the enrollment of the National Identification Number (NIN).
The KOICA Office in Nigeria in a statement, explained that the new agreement will help the implementation of the ‘Project for Building Foundations Towards Digital Governance in Nigeria from 2020 to 2026’.
It read: “The project, which is fully funded by the Korean government through grant aid, is expected to enhance capacity for the further execution of key initiatives of the National eGovernment Master Plan, improve competencies for e-government service delivery through capacity building programmes, expand the delivery of government digital services through the activation of the government service portal, www.services.gov.ng, and create increased access for NIN enrolment through the establishment of additional NIN enrolment centres.”
Speaking during the event, Isa Pantami, the Minister of Communications and Digital Economy, noted that KOICA’s aid disbursement for e-government remained the highest in Nigeria.
