Federal civil servants across Nigeria will soon enjoy Free Access Closed User Group lines provided by telecommunications company, Globacom.
The company said the lines are being provisioned in its bid to contribute to the productivity of public servants in Nigeria, and will ensure seamless yet affordable communication opportunities within and outside the service. The lines will also be documented in a formal directory with the names and ministries of domicile of all public servants at the Federal level.
The company opined that the relationship between telecommunications and the civil service in any growing nation cannot be over-emphasised. “This enables nations to improve the productivity and efficiency of their workforce since employees can deploy voice and data services to make calls, send or receive email, browse websites, conduct research, access databases or participate in conference calls,” Globacom added.
“Workers do not have to switch between ranges of different communication devices; they rather enjoy the opportunity to save precious executive time and reduce organisations’ communications equipment costs. In addition to this, productivity, efficiency and passion for excellence are kindled owing to the fact that tedium of work is lessened, while greater results are obtained in the process.”
Telecommunications, the network said, also makes it easier for employees in different departments or remote locations to work together. Rather than spend effort booking a conference room or travelling to meetings, employees can join a videoconference or Web conference from their desks.”
Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Oyo-Ita, gave kudos to Globacom for the offer, describing the brand as a truly Nigerian company whose activities reflect its deep commitment to the welfare of the populace professionally, and in their personal endeavours.
