The Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun has described the usage of technology in public administration as a welcome development, saying that his administration has been able to increase its revenue generation thanks to technology.
A statement issued by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, said Gov. Abiodun made this known during the 2nd edition of the Southwest Secretaries to the State Government’s (SSG) Forum held in Abeokuta, the Ogun state capital.
He noted that the usage of technology had also helped his administration to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the state’s revenue generating agencies.
“We’ve realized that just by using technology, we have been able to increase our revenue generation; it has allowed us to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our different revenue generating agencies, particularly our internally generating agency.
“So, we’ve doubled our Internally Generated Revenue without unnecessarily burdening our people, this further underscores the need to continue to utilize technology in public administration,” he said.
