Titans of Tech’15: Galaxy Backbone is Outstanding Government Agency of the Year

The Galaxy Backbone Limited, last weekend emerged winner as Outstanding Government Agency of the Year at the 10th anniversary of Titans of Tech Awards organized by Technology Africa in Lagos, reports ITRealms.

Galaxy Backbone is a leading ICT infrastructure and services company wholly owned by the Federal Government.

The Managing Director and chief executive officer, Galaxy Backbone Ltd, Mr. Yusuf Kazaure, said after receiving the award that the award won by Galaxy Backbone lent strength and credibility to the national interest in transparency in governance driven by information and communications technologies. 

Managing Consultant, Technology Africa, Don Pedro Aganbi said that the current administration believes in driving governance with electronic platform "and Galaxy Backbone is blazing the trail in the sector and they have all the support of the ICT industry. The president's change agenda will be driven by both e-government and e-governance."

ITRealms reports that Galaxy emerged winner against other top contending government agencies including NITDA, NCC, FAAN and NAFDAC. 

As said by the organizers, Galaxy is the number one example of how a public enterprise can run successfully as a private venture with corporate governance, transparency and efficiency as its hallmark. 

In his reaction, Group Head, Corporate Services, Galaxy Backbone Ltd, Owoicho Igoji, said, “For us this is an external validation for the values we strive to inculcate in Galaxy especially under the Galaxy 2.0 initiative”.

ITRealms also recalls that Galaxy recently at an E-Government Summit in Abuja unveiled its national e-government strategy referred to as “Whole-of-Government Approach” which is based on the deployment of a shared technology platform for e-Government services using its 1-Gov.net platform.
