“We are about the only state that has gone paperless in our government processes, the Commissioner said.

“Some states are centuries behind on this. With our almost 80% e-government compliance in the civil and public service, we lead all other states.

“While many states are trying to negotiate with Galaxy Backbone, the Nations Data center for web hosting and stuff, Edo State has a tier 3 State-of-the-art Data center with over 1.5 pentabyte data storage space with a 99.999% efficiency level”, Hon. Ifaluyi-isibor said.

Many he said asked how the state has been able to go about its different initiatives and been able to keep up with the minimum wage of ₦40,000 for workers, citing the EdoBest program as one of the prime examples.

He said it propelled the thoughts of hosting State Commissioners across the country to Benin City, the state capital to learn more and improve their respective state ministries.
