The State Interests and Governance Authority (SIGA) has issued a compelling call for businesses to harness the potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) to drive innovation and efficiency in the public sector.

In his address, Mr. Stephen Asiedu, the acting general manager for operation, SIGA, underscored the transformative power of AI in enhancing public service delivery across various sectors such as healthcare, housing, and education.

He highlighted how AI adoption could streamline operations, improve service quality, and boost efficiency. However, he noted the slow uptake of AI in the African public sector, citing challenges like skill shortages, inadequate research investment, and regulatory ambiguities.

“I urged African public sector leaders to prioritize AI adoption as a means to achieve governance and service delivery objectives, ultimately benefiting citizens and driving sustainable development across the continent”.

SIGA expressed its willingness to collaborate on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiatives throughout Africa to support this endeavor.

Mr.  Asiedu, made the remarks on behalf of SIGA’s Director General, Mr. John Boadu, at the inaugural Africa Public Sector Leadership & Innovation Awards 2024.

At the awards ceremony, Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation (BOST) received three accolades, with Deputy Managing Director Mr. Moses Mensah Asem expressing gratitude for the recognition. He highlighted the dedication and hard work of BOST despite challenges, emphasizing the importance of public sector commitment to serving the interests of the people.

The event not only celebrated achievements but also served as a call to action for meaningful dialogue and collaboration to address Africa’s challenges and drive progress in the public sector.
