The Ondo State Commissioner for Information and Orientation, Mr Yemi Olowolabi has described social media as one of the fastest means of reporting events to reach larger audience.

Olowolabi said in his office in Akure on Monday while playing host to TecPoint Global Solutions.

The commissioner said the world was now a global village where social media was very important.

“The Ondo State Government has a well equipped Information Technology Centre, which was established to guarantee efficient and service delivery in the governance and administrative system in the state,” he said.

Olowolabi said the State Integrated Financial Information System (SIFMIS) introduced into the administrative system was aimed at ensuring transparency and accountability and to boost e-governance.

He said Gov. Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s administration went  digital with the introduction of SIFMIS in the governance of the state.
