He noted that the move will have a revolutionary impact on unifying secure biometric digital identity smart cards for every citizen with payment facility.

According to him, this will also make it easier for citizens to gain access to services and eliminate hours, or even weeks, of delay caused by the need to show or send physical copies of identity cards or other credentials and reduce the risk of fraud.

On his part, El Saghir said his firm was honoured to be selected to lead the digital transformation of healthcare and agriculture sectors in Nigeria. He noted: “eGate Technology is leading the way in digital transformation in the region. We believe that digital transformation will improve population’s access to services management, to increase efficiency, reduce costs, improve data security and privacy, and provide decision makers with statistics.”

Oyewole described signing of the agreement as an achievement, which will go a long way in contributing to critical areas in healthcare and agriculture services development of the country.
