Delta State Commissioner for Information, Charles Aniagwu, has reiterated Government’s resolve to ensure that all agencies under the Ministry of Information were upgraded to function optimally.
The Commissioner made this statement while responding to questions from journalists yesterday after handing over some work equipment to Pointer Newspapers in Asaba.
The Commissioner stated that the Ministry had to start from somewhere and that Pointer was chosen due the kind of service it provided to the populace as well as the much needed upgrade. He also explained that due to the limited funds available to Government as a result of other pressing areas to fund; the ministry had to take its projects one step at a time.
That notwithstanding, Mr. Aniagwu stated that other parastatals like the Delta Broadcasting Service Asaba and Warri were being giving their due attention which may not be very noticeable for now.
‘Content development is key to service delivery hence the Ministry and the Parastatals are working hand in hand to make things work but until the results were obvious, it would seem that nothing was being done.’
The Commissioner also drew attention to the ongoing rehabilitation of the Printing Press located in the Old Secretariat where a lot has been done in terms of procurement of machines to make the complex a one stop shop for all printing jobs for Government establishments as well as private customers.
On Government’s response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the Commissioner while commending Health Workers and all those in the front line noted that Government was doing so much to eradicate the virus from the state and encouraged Deltans to strictly adhere to laid down guidelines and expressed hope that our present reality would soon be a thing of the past.
