Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, in Akure, has flagged off the first-ever Residency Card project in Africa.
During the flag off, the Governor said the project was not for not for identification. He said it was aimed at having reliable and up_to_date data of all residents in the state that would in turn serve as a precursor for effective planning and allocation of scarce government resources for effective service delivery management.
Governor Mimiko, alongside his Deputy, Alhaji Ali Olanusi and the Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Mr. Samuel Adesina, were the first to be registered.
Already, the State Information Technology Agency, SITA, has enumerated 2,741 towns, hamlets and villages and identified 2,010 centres for the scheme.
