Open Government: MDAs working across-purposes - Expert group

Telecommunications experts have said that inconsistency and defective policy formulation by the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) of government have been working across-purposes, thus not helpful for open government crusade, reports ITRealms.

Leading these experts in Lagos, the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria (ATCON), in reaction to recent plans by the Central Bank of Nigeria to introduce National Cyber Security Fund in the polity, saying that absence of cohesive formulation and implementation of government policies negates the open government idealogy that Nigeria even signed up to uphold.

Lack of proper policies coordination, ATCON president, Mr. Teniola Olusola said, has not been helpful.

“While some government agencies are working towards migrating all government services online, some others are working towards discouraging people from making use of electronic channels via this obnoxious levy.

Teniola insisted that “It should be stated for the purpose of records that government should not think that the elasticity of demand for the use of electronic channels is inelastic as this move can stop people from transacting their businesses via available electronic channels.”
