Buhari names Uzodinma, others Council members of E-Government


President Muhammadu Buhari has appointed Imo Governor Hope Uzodimma into the Presidential Council on E-Government and Digital Economy.

Uzodimma with 26 other Nigerians will henceforth fashion out ways in which digital technologies will be employed to transform every sector of the economy.

At the inauguration of the Council, President Buhari said the choice of Uzodimma and others was arrived at after “a painstaking and thorough process.”

He told Uzodimma to ensure that he works hard to justify the confidence the nation has reposed on him.

He said the Governor will be working with five other Governors, Ministers and members of the private sector to realise the Federal Government’s goals in E-Government and Digital Economy.

He tasked Uzodimma and the other members to consider their appointment as a national assignment that requires utmost dedication.

While announcing the Minister of Communication and Digital Economy, Prof Isa Ali Pantami will chair the Council on his behalf, Buhari expressed satisfaction with the progress Nigeria has made in digital technologies.

According to him, apart from the fact that the information and communication technology sector recorded a quantum leap in 2020, its growth rate was instrumental in supporting Nigeria’s exit from recession after the Covid-19 pandemic.

The President was also happy that the country’s progress in e-governance has been noted by the international community, resulting to the appointment of Prof Pantami as the Chairman of the 2022 Forum of the highly regarded World Summit of the Information Society.
