The newly appointed Dr. Hatwib Mugasa today swore in and took oath of the office as the Executive Director of the National Information Technology Authority (NITA) Uganda, officiated by the Permanent Secretary for the Ministry of ICT and National Guidance, Hon. Vincent Waiswa Bagiire on behalf of Hon. Judith Nabakooba.
This comes after James Saaka officially handed over the role last week in the presence of the NITA-U Board led by its Chairman Johnson Musinguzi after he successful completed the legally authorized 10-year tenure as the Executive Director of the body.
Dr. Mugasa will take forward a number of NITA initiatives they have been working on to transform service delivery in the country. NITA embarked on integration of government systems and services with the aim of easing data sharing, reducing ICT and internet costs and in turn improve public service delivery.
“I am pleased to take on such a vital role in transforming service delivery in the country. We shall continue working tirelessly to ensure all Government services are online,’’ said Dr. Mugasa while accepting his new role.
