Have you heard about Lagos Residents Registration Initiative ?
September 15th, 2013 2:43 am
With RAMP's recent nomination among the top 40 startups to pitch at the second edition of DEMO Africa taking place in Nairobi, Kenya in October. Our schedule has been quite busy with making preparations to showcase and launch RAMP at DEMO Africa next month. 
 
However despite that, I couldn't seem to quench this burning desire to post about Lagos state's applaudable e-governance initiatiative which is aimed at electronically registering the residents of the state. Quite an ambitious task but very achievable.
We are excited this is happening, gradually people will understand why RAMP is the next big thing.
 
Below are excepts from LASRAA website  
Society has become more mobile and the information held electronically about persons and services by government agencies and other bodies have substantially increased. There is a growing need to integrate the residents of Lagos State into e-government initiatives to enable the services provided by government to be fully utilised and also provide an accurate picture for government policy and planning.
 
The Lagos State Residents Registration Agency Bill was passed and signed into law on the 27th of June 2011. 
 
The law established LASRRA with the following functions: 
 
  • To create a reliable database of all residents in Lagos State.
  • To establish the relevant infrastructure for the creation of a residents information database.
  • To produce guidelines for data to be contained in the registration form.
  • To advice the government on mode of collecting data from the public.
  • The data collected and collated by the Agency with the residency card issued would provide for a reliable method of authenticating and identifying residents. It will likewise avail the e-services facilities provided by the State.
     
The Lagos State Residents Registration initiative has the potential to address key challenges facing e-government and other initiatives. Various e-government initiatives have been enabled to collect electronic data and each operates autonomous of each other.

To provide a more accurate picture for government policies and planning, a link must be established between these various stores of data.
