The Nigeria Army has said it was embracing e-records keeping to boost service delivery because the old records keeping methods had become obsolete and embarrassing.
Chief of Administration, Army Headquarters, Major General Kuta-Adamu Isyaku, who said this at a conference on Army records in Lokoja, added that the Army was embracing technology to digitize its personnel records to ease administrative actions.
The conference held at the Chari Maigumeri Barracks had the theme: “Data and Information Management in the 21st Century: A Panacea for Administration in the Nigeria Army”.
According to Isyaku, the Nigeria Army has continued to be confronted with the challenges of traditional methods of record keeping and management that were obsolete and embarrassing.
He stressed that the theme for the conference was very apt, saying that the department of administration would continue to support the Command Army Record’s efforts and the commitment of the Chief of Army Staff, to ventures that would make the Army better.
