National eGovernment Strategies Ltd (NeGSt) has said all is set for the deployment of eGovernment initiatives in Nigeria.
NeGSt was established as a public/private partnership, to facilitate implementation of the Nigerian e-Government project. It was officially launched by President Olusegun Obasanjo in 2004. NeGSt Executive Vice Chairman, Dr Olu Agunloye, said his office had put necessary structures in place for the take-off of the project. Agunloye said NEGST had met with alliance partners, to determine the type of partnership to take on board the project. He said the project had presented 'a proof of concept' to Obasanjo and the Economic Team at a presidential retreat where it was endorsed. Agunloye said the project would kick-off with the presentation of eGovernment solutions to Nigerians. These solutions include e-Registration, telemedicine, and e-Health that would avail both rural and urban dwellers the opportunity of accessing quality healthcare services.
