Anambra - The Anambra government says it will soon establish two new ministries to further improve its economy and service delivery.
Oseloka Obaze, the Secretary to the State Government, announced the plan while speaking with newsmen in Awka on Wednesday.
Obaze said the new ministries were that of petroleum and Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
“The ministry of petroleum will help to harness the natural resources in the state to boost the employment of professionals in the field.
“As an oil producing state, the need to actualise the goal of good life and poverty alleviation for the people has become imperative,” Obaze said.
He said the ICT ministry would ensure that every school-age child in the state was computer literate.
Obaze said that schools in the 177 communities of the state had received computers, adding that it is imperative that professionals be employed to improve computer education.
He said that a committee to assess and proffer more genetic ideas had been set up to ensure smooth transition to the incoming administration.
“We are working as a party since it is the same party that is incoming and governance is a process.
“It is like a relay race; programmes will be planned to fall in sequence for the optimal benefit of the citizenry.
“We know that the incoming governor has his own programme, but our party ideology needs to be placed before him to ensure that no project is abandoned,” he said.
