An Information Communication Technology Company in Nigeria, Galaxy Backbone Limited, has called for a collaboration with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, in the areas of training and cyber security.

The Managing Director of the company, Professor Muhammad Abubakar made the call in Abuja while on a courtesy visit to the EFCC Chairman, Mr Abdulrasheed Bawa at the Corporate Headquarters of the Commission in Abuja.

We give training, particularly Information Communication Technology, ICT, training, which I believe organizations like the EFCC would want to explore to train their personnel to keep them abreast of the current cyber security challenges”.

He congratulated the EFCC on the successes and achievements recorded since the Chairman assumed the leadership of the Commission.

“It was truly a very wise decision for the government to have a pioneer cadet of the Commission as the head of the EFCC.

The EFCC Chairman, Abdulrasheed Bawa said the commission could not have recorded the successes without leveraging technology in its day-to-day activities, ranging from case file management system and human resources management to the creation of a corruption reporting application, Eagle Eye App, among others.

“There is no way we can do this kind of job here without leveraging ICT… One of the things that we have done is developing software that could in the long run make us paperless,” he said.

He called for what he described as the creation of an e-governance structure that would ensure that most ministries, departments and agencies, MDAs, of government are integrated electronically.
