    FG Begins Pilot Project for Data Registry, Information System to Support Economy

    Information System to Support Economy
    Dr Anthony Uwa, Head of Implementation, Basic Registry and Information System in Nigeria, says the Federal Government is committed to the implementation of the project as it commences the pilot project in FCT.

    Uwa told the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja that the Federal Government and the service provider of BRISIN, Dermo Impex, had carried out awareness campaigns on the project.
    BRISIN is an integrated system for the collection, storage and distribution of information to support the management of the economy.
    The Federal Government had approved the implementation of the project which would be carried out by Dermo Impex, an Italian based Information and Communication Technology Company.

    He said that BRISIN had started with sensitisation and workshop on disability.
    “The second leg of the project is the official flag off. At the official flag off, the field work will start, that is the real implementation.
    “All the necessary logistic needs to be prepared before the flag off, that is why we have met with stakeholders to make sure that BRISIN is implemented.

    “It is the responsibility of the FCT to provide funding, they are going to provide provisional office for the flag off and implementation before BRISIN centres are built.
    “The Federal Government has asked us to look at the possibility of seeking funds from Nigeria citizens and international organisations, mostly because of this aspect that has to do with the disability.

    “Disability is not an area that investors will put their money, they need a lot of donors and sympathetic help that comes,’’ the coordinator said.
    Uwa, however, told NAN that the implementation team would mobilise resources to start the project, using few investors who are ready to support the project.
    According to him, BRISIN is a programme that will take over 10 to 15 years across the country
