When this shared prosperity government of His Excellency Distinguished Senator Hope Uzodimma came onboard, one of the challenges we were faced with was that of no database for both the state civil servants and the citizens in general.
The government went straight into establishing the Imo State Data management centre, an agency saddled with the responsibility of generating an accurate database for the State. This database will help handle issues related to ghost-workers, promotion, migration from service to pension etc in the state civil service while addressing welfare related matters for the citizens.
Upon completion, citizens who successfully register and get their IMSSBN will be able to have access to health insurance, loans and business support from the government, employment opportunities, skill acquisition as well as generate citizen inforpedia.
This program will tackle unemployment among the youths, quality health care delivery as well as help the government make proper planning for the citizens in terms of social welfare packages and provision of social amenities.
Contrary to the nauseating stories making around about this scheme, this exercise is also targeted at enrolling every adult in Imo State (indegene) into an enterprise database platform just like the state government did when sanitizing the civil service.
We therefore encourage all Imolites to utilize this opportunity to get their IMSSBN to enable them benefit from the dividends of democracy from the state government
