Omniverse Summit: Anambra State ICT Agency Boss Champions Strategy for Public Sector Innovation


Chukwuemeka Fred Agbata, CFA, MD/CEO of Anambra State ICT Agency, has championed a transformative approach to innovation in the civil service. His insights, shared at the ongoing Omniverse Summit February 27 – March 1, 2024, at the Landmark Event Center, Lagos, advocate for a paradigm shift in how innovation is perceived and fostered within the public sector.

During a riveting panel discussion, CFA addressed the pervasive myth that civil servants are inherently non-innovative. He countered this narrative with compelling evidence, stating, “The notion that civil servants lack innovation is a misconception we’re determined to overturn. Innovation flourishes when civil servants at all levels are engaged and empowered to collaborate, unlocking vast potential for societal advancement.”

CFA drew attention to the fintech sector’s explosive growth as a prime example of public sector innovation, crediting this success to the proactive and forward-thinking civil servants within regulatory bodies such as the CBN. Their ability to anticipate and adapt to the industry’s needs has been pivotal.

Further highlighting Anambra State’s commitment to innovation, CFA spoke of the significant steps taken under Governor Soludo’s leadership, including eliminating right-of-way (RoW) charges. “This policy not only incentivizes investment but also cultivates a fertile ground for technological and innovative endeavors”, Agbata added.

CFA’s message resonated with clarity and purpose: Anambra is leading the charge into a new dawn of public sector innovation, galvanized by the untapped potential of its civil servants. This movement is more than a regional narrative; it’s a national call to action, inviting all stakeholders to contribute to a future where innovation is integral to public service.

We stand at the threshold of a transformative era in public service, driven by innovation and collaborative spirit. Anambra’s journey under the visionary leadership of Governor Soludo is just the beginning. We invite you to be part of this transformative journey. Engage with us on our social media platforms @ANdotICTA, share your ideas and solutions for enhancing public service through technology and innovation.

Together, let’s redefine the essence of public service through innovation.

This is our collective mission to serve, innovate, and lead in an ever-evolving world.
