Nibo, June 11, 2018 (MOI) Anambra State website, will soon be upgraded for revenue collection, top Government official said.


``This will be effected as soon as it has been made secure for that purpose,’’ Anambra State Commissioner for Information and Public Enlightenment, Mr C Don Adinuba said.


The commissioner said this during interactive session with the Anambra State Website Consultant, Mrs Caroline Akhuetie and other stakeholders at the Trig Point Hotel, Nibo.


``The site can be used for diverse Government transactions, which will help it to raise its revenue profile,’’ he said.


Adinuba noted that the website could also be used to showcase and advertise the achievements of the state government such as Anambra rice.


A Branding and Marketing Communication Consultant, Mr Mike Obiajulu Meze observed that some essential communication tools like the Government crest on the website were not properly positioned.


He urged that such tools be represented in an appropriate place.


He also criticized the current colours used on the site and urged that  the approved colours of the state – 70 per cent yellow and 30 per cent black – be deployed.  


The Chairman Physical Planning Board, Mr Chike Maduekwe and the Anambra Broadcasting Service (ABS), website Manager, Mr Steve Nwainokpor observed that Ministries and Parastatal Agencies in the state could have their websites linked to the main Anambra site.


The Site Manager, Mrs Akhuetie promised to effect the updates in close cooperation with the Ministry of Information and Public Enlightenment.


She, however, noted that for the growth and success of the website, all agencies and Parastatal agencies need to cooperate to provide the information needed to populate the site. (MOI)
