The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the summit was themed “Rethinking Civil Service in a Digital World”.

Akeredolu, who was represented by the Deputy Governor, Mr Lucky Aiyedatiwa, stressed that ICT helped the civil service deliver its policies and programmes more effectively, as evidently seen in the state through the various achievements.

Akeredolu said the extant sharing formula had put the sub-nationals at a great disadvantage and left yearning gaps between states’ receipt at the federation account and its developmental projects and programmes.

The governor, who said the state would continue to support the growth of the public service, added his administration had impacted positively on the public service of the state in several ways, notwithstanding constraints of funds.

“So, as a matter of urgency, the focus of the service must be on resource generation and effective resource management, emphasising value for money and achieving more with less resources.

“The public service must become receptive to global best practices and apply them, to enable our people to continue to enjoy dividends of good governance.

“And one of the surest ways of achieving this is the digitalisation of government operations.

Technology must be fully deployed to generate more resources, identify and block loopholes and optimise service delivery in our respective bureaucracies in the south-west geo-political zone.

”I must emphasise the need for the rebirth of our zone in the Nigeria equation. We must put our shoulders to the wheel to ensure that good legacies and vision bequeathed to us by political forebearers are preseved and expanded,” he said.

In his remarks, Ondo State Head of Service, Pastor John Adeyemo, noted that it was high time the service leveraged on technology to assist the political authorities to achieve a responsive governance system.

Adeyemi assured the governor of diligence and improved service delivery in all sectors of public service.

The Director General, Dawn Commission, Mr Seye Oyeleye, said the continued participation of the head of service was a sign of their support to regional integration and professionalism.
