Shittu also said the Federal Government would establish an e-government services company, through the Nigeria Postal Service (NIPOST), to provide platform for the masses to reach those in government and access direct information on all government activities.
He said: “Only recently, we received the Federal Government’s approval for the e-government master plan, which is a policy formulated drafted by the Ministry of Communication about two or three years ago. We are working on that to ensure that we internalise this policy throughout the spectrum of government.
“Through the NIPOST, we are trying to establish an e-government services company which would enable the ordinary masses of this country to be able to reach the government and be able to access all of government information apart from the services that the government offers in various ways.
“I want to assure this gathering that within the next couple of months, this new e-government services company would along with other new companies we plan to register and establish for the benefit of Nigerians.”
