Nigeria: Jang Decries Bad Shape of Secretariat, Promises Renovation

Gov. Jonah Jang of Plateau on Thursday decried the bad condition of the state secretariat complex and promised to renovate it before 2015.

Jang, who inspected on-going work on some blocks under renovation, expressed concern over the "bad condition of some of the offices within the secretariat complex".

"This government is not happy with the state of offices in this complex and will do everything to uplift their conditions.

"We hope to renovate the entire complex before 2015 to give workers the needed conducive atmosphere to put in their best," he said.

Jang, however, expressed satisfaction with the rehabilitation work on the four-storey block housing five ministries.

The governor also visited the Ministry of Finance and lauded efforts toward creating a new ICT department.

"We want to ensure that all workers are ICT compliant for qualitative work delivery.

"I expect all of you to see it as a challenge to be computer literate because those who can't cope will be posted to other places," he said. NAN
