The Kwara government has concluded arrangements to launch the state Geographic Information System (GIS) in the first quarter of 2012, Alhaji Usman Hamza, the Senior Special Assistant on Information Technology, said.
He said that the state government had already established an Information Technology (IT) office to work toward developing the IT innovations and developments in the state.
The special assistant said "the government will adopt 'Invective Sector Ingestion' where the use of IT will be applied in all sectors of the state economy."
Hamza added that the state government had previously launched a Land Information System (LIS) and would soon launch Operation System to Manage Emergency and Relief Efforts.
"The government is also working with mobile operators in the state to assist in a system to make emergency calls free of charge."
He noted that the current Kwara government inherited some quality ICT projects from the previous administration and planned to build on it.
"The government will revive the state website and make it the first of its kind in the country.
"And by the first quarter of next year, government activities will truly be interactive." NAN
