The National Coordinator of Corporate Affairs at Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria (BRISIN), Mr Tony Okorocha, said the pilot stage of the project will begin in FCT by first quarter of 2016. He made this known in an interview with newsmen in Abuja yesterday.
He said that the Federal Government had approved the implementation of the project which would be carried out by Dermo Impex, an Italian based Information and Communication Technology (ICT) company.
The coordinator said that BRISIN, an integrated system for the collection, storage and distribution of information to support the management of the economy had a lot of benefits.
“What we are doing now is the preparatory work ahead of the commencement of the project.
“We are expanding our sensitisation to the public on the benefits of the project now after we have reached out to the Technical Committee of BRISIN. There is need for us to sensitise the people to cooperate with us when we send our staff to the field to collect information,’’ he said.
According to him, Dermo Impex, a solution provider for the Federal Government on BRISIN will also extend the sentisation to the new cabinet.
Okorocha said no fewer than 9,822 servers would be installed in all the wards, local governments and states in the country as part of implementing the project. We will install one server in each of the 8,812 wards in Nigeria, and move up to the 774 local government headquarters. [BRISIN]
