The minister of the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA, Muhammad Musa Bello, has said the FCTA is working on arrangement to partner with Chams Plc, a leading provider of identity management and intelligent business solutions on the Abuja Smart City project.
Speaking during a presentation by Chams Plc in Abuja recently, the chief of staff, FCTA, Mr Bashir Mai-Bornu, who represented the minister at the event, said the FCTA would like to engage the company in providing ICT solutions in the areas of education and health.
He said: ‘‘Technology is the future and anybody that ignores it does so it at his own peril. The FCT requires a lot of ICT solutions because of the services it provides. We believe with what Chams has done in the country in its 33 years of existence, it can play a big role in making Abuja a smart city.’’
In his response, the group managing director, Chams, Mr Femi Williams, said the company has a lot of creative ways of solving problems. According to him, the company is good at understanding challenges and can generate Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) for the FCTA from any area with different strategies.
In his presentation, Williams said the company has provided intelligent business solutions for many clients which include: Osun and Anambra state governments, Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria, ICAN, Nigerian Communications Commission, NCC, Chartered Institute of Taxation of Nigeria, CITN, among others.
‘‘Most of our solutions are built and managed by Nigerians. We don’t sell solutions, we adapt them. We are very good at understanding challenges. We do intelligent business solutions that add value to our customers.’’
Chams, a conglomerate commenced business in Nigeria in 1985 as a computer hardware and maintenance company. The company is quoted on the Nigerian Stock Exchange.
