Ojogo noted that their visit and words of encouragement would boost the morale of the management and entire staff of the Ministry.

He echoed that the Ministry is very strategic and has remained professional in Information gathering, processing and dissemination of government activities.

The commissioner, went further that Information management and security need adequate funding, adding that much has been appropriated for the Ministry but has not been cashed due to paucity of funds owing to global economic challenges.

They urged the Ministry to carry members of the Committee along in their activities as that will further strengthen the relationship between the House Committee on Information and the State Ministry of Information and Orientation.
