Ogun govt. promises free phone calls for workers in 2016

Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State.

The Ogun Government has concluded arrangements to connect civil servants to Free Voice Over Internet Protocol to enhance productivity and hitch-free communication in the discharge of their official duties.

​The g​overnment is also set to establish a data centre across the three senatorial districts in the state to give room for rural participation in governance.

The Director of Information Technology in the Bureau of Information Technology, Olatundun Adekunte, made this known while speaking with journalists on Tuesday in Abeokuta.

She explained ​that ​the device would be put in place at the Oke-Mosan Government Secretariat in the state capital to allow civil servants access free calls during official working hours.

Mr. Adekunte also said that arrangements were being made to procure mobile phones and other accessories for the workers.

“There is an existing network for communication, though restricted to few individuals. However, come 2016, all civil servants in the state will be connected to the network.

“This is aimed at making communication amongst the workers more effective and thus increase their productivity,’’ the director said.

Mr. Adekunte said the data centre, when established, would give room for rural participation in governance.

“This development will allow the rural dwellers have access to internet and online media to ensure their active participation in governance through a highly effective feedback mechanism,’’ she added.
