Lagos - The Ebonyi State has trained more than 2 000 civil servants in the field of information and communications technology (ICT) in line with plans to enhance service delivery.
The training is part of broader initiatives to ensure every civil servant in the state was computer literate.
"The state government has made it a policy that every worker in the state should be computer literate and the introduction of the ICT programme has not only revolutionised the service in terms of qualitative service delivery but has also enhanced workers’ self-esteem," the state’s Head of Service, Ugo Nnachi, said in Abaliki.
She said the reforms were aimed at enhancing accountability and a result-oriented civil service.
The moves were bearing fruit.
"I believe that the people of Ebonyi state are able to feel the impact of government because the civil service is still alive to its responsibility.
"My office is determined to continue to work assiduously and ensure the state civil service takes the front seat in terms of commitment and performance of duties because the survival and progress of any democracy depends largely on the efficiency and effectiveness of its workforce,”
Ebonyi, with a population of about 1.8 million, is one of six states Nigeria created in 1996.
