The Nasarawa State government is worried that 16 years after its creation, ministries, departments and agencies (MDAs) still process official documents at business centres.
Secretary to the State government, Alhaji Hamza Elayo, expressed this worry in Lafia even as he accused past administrations in the state of not being sufficiently sensitive to government secrets, movement of files and other sensitive materials.
He pledged that the present administration was making effort to correct this anomaly by ensuring that the necessary office equipment were put in place.
LEADERSHIP investigations revealed that even worse than exposing government secrets to undeserved members of the public, government files and other materials were also printed in private printing press, instead of the government owned printing press, located at the premises of the state ministry of information and orientation, along Shendam road, Lafia.
Reacting to this development, the secretary to state government said that “I attribute it to insensitivity on the part of past administrations, who allowed things to go the way they are at the moment. They complained about electricity, computers and all that, but I want to assure you that it will soon be a thing of the past. We are working on the modalities and way out of that mess.”
