As part of concerted efforts to activate ease of doing business and boost transparency in grassroots governance, Warri South Local Government Council, under the Dr. Michael Tidi led administration, has launched a world class portal, www.warrisouth.dl.gov.ng, Fresh Angle International can report.

    

The website, which comprises of Internet Database System that can track or be tracking all the revenue collections in the local government directly into the local government account(s), will stop the collection of revenues by cash at hand and the revenue inflow would be paid either through banks, POS or ATM Cards.

 

The database, is expected to collect the data of all businesses and government establishments in the local government and connect them to the system, which would be linked to the local government account(s).

 

This Newspaper, understands that the database system, would create a platform where bulk SMS can be sent regularly to all revenue payers to notify them of their due date for payment and immediately payments are made, apart from notifying and authenticating the payments as well as the payers.

 

The portal, which will also highlight programmes and events of the council in terms of professional reportage, would reduce internally generated revenue leakages accruing to the council by 65%.

 

The website also entails a data collection and storage system, where indigenes across the local government can register for local government of origin and other necessary registrations online anywhere in the world, without coming down to the council and also have access to know about what’s happening in their local government, even if they aren’t within the local government area.

 

It is linked to the local government social media platforms- Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram and Youtube accounts, showcasing to the world the developmental strides, performances, projects, achievements and other activities going on in the local government.

 

Report says few local government councils in the country have the database system installed and it is helping to forestall revenue leakages as well as enhancing performance to the benefits of the masses.
