“There has been precedent as it regards the ministry. We will study what is on the ground, take our review, and see areas where improvement has to be made. If there is a need for change, we will change. If there is a need for restructuring we will restructure.

“That is the innovation aspect of it, which will encourage the scientific approach to almost every issue that is on the ground. We will study every problem on the ground, and then we devise means of providing solutions for the problem. For us, this is the technological aspect of it. I want to see Kogi State that other State will be emulating in terms of technological improvement,” she added.

With an eye towards strengthening governance effectiveness, the Assembly endorsed the deployment of 50 special advisers, tasked with providing strategic guidance and support to the Kogi state government.
