Gov. Abdulrahman Abdulrasaq of Kwara has lamented the dilapidated facilities at the state’s Ministry of Information, describing them ‘as near to non-existent. ”
Abdulrazaq said this on Wednesday in Ilorin during an unscheduled visit to the ministry’s Division of Information Services (DIS).
He said the visit was a follow up to the ministry’s budget review on Tuesday at the School for Special Needs.
”This visit is a follow-up to the budget review we did on Tuesday where the Ministry of Information made presentation, so, I have come to see their facilities which is next to non-existent.
He added that the past administration neglected the ministry as it misunderstood its role with the state radio and television stations.
”We seem to misunderstand the ministry’s role with the state radio and television stations; their activities and programmes are completely different.
”And I think that is what led to the previous government to neglect the Ministry of Information.
”So, we will pay close attention to their activities and give them implements to do their duties properly,” Abdulrazaq said.
The Director of Information Services, Mrs Funke Oludipe, took the governor round the Division.
She also told the governor that whenever there were rains, flood water from the main road was always deposited at the premises of the Nigeria News Agency.
