Through this platform , Mustapha said members of the public would be free to
request for information from government , submit ideas , and lodge complaints .

Such requests , ideas or complaints , he explained , would elicit timely response from government .

He said arrangements were being concluded to train officials from Ministries , Departments and Agencies who will be handling the different segments of the website.

Mustapha said those who criticise government do not necessarily hate the government .

“ When people criticise government , it is not that they hate government . They want government to do better and for them to see improvement , ” he said .

The Permanent Secretary , General Services , Office of the SGF , Mr. Olusegun Adekunle , said the decision to upgrade the website was taken so that it can serve better .

He added that each of the six offices in the SGF’ s office will have content managers before they can upload content .

He said there was a plan to train initial 50 officers for the six offices .
