FG to showcase Remita at international exhibition

Remita, an indigenous technology solution, is to be showcased by the Federal Government on the international scene as the e-payment gateway that enabled the Treasury Single Account (TSA), which has helped to save more than N3 trillion.

This was made known by the Acting Director-General of National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA), Dr. Vincent Olatunji, during a working visit to the headquarters of SystemSpecs, the developers of Remita.
Olatunji said government’s interest in the e-payment solution has a link with the successes attained by Remita in the implementation of TSA to save more than N3 trillion for the government.

Remita is among other indigenous technology solutions that NITDA would be showcased at GiTEX 2016, the annual information technology exhibition holding in Dubai from October 16 to 20, 2016. At the Nigerian Pavilion, Remita would feature prominently at the Africa Investment Forum, a side-line event of GiTEX.

The TSA, attained by Remita, was discussed at an interactive session organised by the Nigerian foreign mission with the Nigerian community in the UAE with Ambassador Babagana Wakil, acting Nigeria Consul General to the UAE in attendance.
“Participants had reinstated that they were considering implementing TSA in Dubai based on the Nigerian model. They believe that if Remita could work in Nigeria, it would work anywhere else”, Olatunji said.
