Residents of the state will soon have value for their money as the State Information Technology Agency (SITA) is set to upgrade and rebrand the old “Kaadi Igbeayo” to become standard residency card.


As part of strategic plan to actualize this, all Programme Analysts, Data Processing Officers and other concerned cadres in the State Information Technology Agency are currently undergoing intensive training on digit and data entry.
Declaring the training open, Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Information Communication Technology and the Coordinator of SITA, Mr. Olumbe Akinkugbe informed that the modified card when completed will contain basic information such as medical records, occupation, properties, evidence of tax payment, family history of holders.
According to him, such vital information will assist government in proper planning, revenue generation and adequate security of lives and property.
Earlier, Administrative Secretary of the Agency, Mrs Olubunmi Omotola charged the officers to brace up and take the assignment with all the seriousness it deserves as government will depend heavily on data and information to be generated by them.
She directed them not only to be thorough, courteous, diligent but pay attention to details as majority of those who will be appearing before them for the new registration will be elderlies, artisans and traders who deserves decent treatment and better explanation.

At the technical session, the resource person, Mr Wole Adeyemi shocked the participants when he revealed that all the 612,944 cards registered by the last administration under “Kaadi Igbeayo” are without residential addresses and photographs.
According to him, 43,000 of the cards are equally without mobile phone lines while 23,000 are without surnames therefore rendering them invalid. 
He however rekindled hope that holders of the cards can represent the for update.
