Listen to article

Efforts have been set in motion by the Anambra State Government to Automate its budget processes for the 2024 fiscal year.

According to a statement from the Anambra State ICT Agency, released to Journalists in Awka on Saturday, the agency has commenced an initiative to hasten the configuration of official emails for state personnel, in order to simplify communication.

‘To ensure the full digitisation of the state budgetary processes, as envisioned by Mr Governor, the state government has developed software for the full digitization, with Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, expected to turn in their proposals and defend same, all digitally,’ Managing Director of the agency, Mr Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata said.

‘Officials of government can only access the platform created with the digitization software with their official email addresses.’

‘So we have set up a dedicated desk at the Ministry, to assist with the creation and configuration of the emails for civil servants and MDAs.’

Mr. Agbata advised civil servants to welcome the new initiative and transition all forms of communication to government-approved emails.

‘As a proactive step, we saw the need to dedicate a team to handle this and assist government workers in setting up and configuring their official government emails on their phones and laptops. We are also setting up and configuring official emails for all the 21 ministries and the MDAs,’

‘To access the platform for digitization, the civil servants are to log in with the official government emails.’

‘So, if you are communicating with a civil servant via generic emails such as Yahoo or Gmail addresses, those correspondences are not official.’

He pointed out that the configuration illustrates Soludo’s dedication to digitizing the budget process in Anambra and improving service delivery.
