GBB Managing Director, Prof. Mohammed Abubakar, made the appeal, on Monday in Abuja, at a breakfast event, on exploring fibre connectivity and other service opportunities for MDAs.
Abubakar, represented by Mr Abdul-Malik Suleiman, GBB Group Head, Business Development, said that Digital Technologies had taken the centre stage in Nigeria, contributing greatly to the country’s Gross Domestic product (GDP) in the last quarter of the year.
He said that the aim of the meeting was to expose MDAs to the World Class Digital Technology platforms built and developed to help connect and transform public institutions into organisations that can thrive effectively in the new world of work.
“It is to renew our commitment to providing effective service to you through the bouquet of Digital Services you will listen in today that we offer and to providing prompt resolutions to your IT challenges.
“We know that we cannot build an agile organisation or respond to the realities of this new world, without meeting your expectations in real time and at all times.
“Even though there are challenges government organisations have with getting last mile from our fibre point to their organisations, we have resolved to easing this to some extent to all the organisations.
“It is as a way to encourage them to take on some of the digital services we offer,” he said.
Abubakar said that the meeting will stimulate future engagements that will help transform, and improve the digital and communications experience for the institutions and prepare them for greater successes with customers and stakeholders as the case may be in the digital economy.
According to him, in the period of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have lived up to our name, by providing effective communication and digital services that continues to help the government and its agencies function and take decisions that have led to the development of the nation.
“The Federal Executive Council (FEC), which stands at the peak of executive governance has continued to meet in spite of the pandemic leveraging the technology and skilled professionals working in Galaxy Backbone.
“We bring this same value to all of you in the room today. We will not rest on our laurels but continue to improve while collaborating with government organisations,” he said.
In his remarks, Suleiman, Group Head, Business Development, GBB, said that the agency was ready to support government’s initiative on ICT inline with the National Digital Economy Strategic Plan (NDESP).
He explained that the quarterly event will enable the outfit to feel the pulse of its customers and know where to pinpoint their challenges with the view to improve on its services.
“What we have done is to continue to improve our services in such a way that our customers will continue to derive value for their money.
“If you listen to my explanation I was attaching value to the money they are paying and if we say something is expensive, we must compare apple for apple and I dare say that we are the most competitive ICT organisation in Nigeria that compares value for money.
