ANAMBRA State Government during an Anambra State Executive Council (ANSEC) meeting held at the Government House, Awka, yesterday, dissolved the boards and governing councils of government institutions and agencies with immediate effect.
This was contained in a Post Anambra State Executive Council (ANSEC) briefing by the Commissioner for Information, Sir Paul Nwosu, who said the boards have been directed to hand over to the most senior civil servants in their organisations.
He further disclosed that the newly confirmed Transition Committee Chairmen of the 21 local government councils will be inaugurated today , after which they will return to their various councils to inaugurate their councilors.
The commissioner stated that plan is underway to hold a retreat for the Transition Committee Chairmen and their principal officers, adding that in furtherance of government policy to re-enact the prosperous era of M.I Okpara in the old Eastern Region when cash crops were the main source of revenue, ANSEC constituted a committee drawn from the three Senatorial zones to map out strategies for distributing the millions of coconut and palm seedlings which have been procured.
Sir Nwosu announced that ANSEC formally terminated the contract awarded to Messrs Rockland Development Ltd, to construct the Ministry of Housing Main Office Complex of Jerome Udorji Secretariat, a contract valued at N33,253,119,66.
He explained that the contract was cancelled due to lack of execution on the part of the contractor, emphasising that ANSEC has resolved to take necessary steps to recover the said amount paid to the contractor.
He said the Attorney General of the state presented a memo which seeks to reform major aspects of the dispensation of justice and has called for the building of model Juvenile Delinquent facility, in the state, in line with international standards, noting that such facility does not exist in the South East, adding that the Attorney General also proposed that the state justice system be digitised for quick dispensation of justice, which involve digital training of staff of the ministry.
