Governor Agbu Kefas of Taraba State has hinted at merging some ministries in the state.

He dropped a hint while speaking at an interactive session with Permanent Secretaries in Jalingo, the state capital.

He expressed optimism that the ministries would become more effective, leading to the growth of the state.

He said, “there will be need for us to merge some of the ministries for proper results. This will enable the state have more directorates or departments”.

Kefas added that the move “will help to train and retrain people to be able to know and carry out their jobs effectively.”

“So, we have plenty of commissioners, and some of them will be confused along the line as time goes on, but when you have a permanent secretary in the ministry with four, three, six directorates, and a division of labour and specialization; see, it becomes more effective,” he added.

Disclosing that his administration is already working out the plans, he reiterated his commitment to consult with the Permanent Secretaries where necessary, stating that “we are working on that. We will still consult some of you that we will get the best out of.”

He urged the Permanent Secretaries to always endeavour to come around him, stating, “It is very important that I should be seeing you people almost every day.”

DAILY POST recalls that the past administration of Arc. Darius Ishaku created some ministries, with some failing to function due to a paucity of funds.
