A’IBOM: Gov Eno Restructures MDAs, Dissolves FADAMA Management


Akwa Ibom State Governor, Pastor Umo Eno, has opened a pathway on the new vista of his A. R. S. E Agenda-driven administration with the restructuring of Ministries, Departments, and Agencies, MDAs.

The Ministry of Agriculture has been merged with Rural Development, a new Ministry created for Water Resources and Sanitation while the Ministry of Power will function in a separate capacity.

Governor Eno announced this while addressing participants at the Akwa Ibom dialogue for the interpretation and implementation of the A.R.I.S.E Agenda blueprint in Uyo, the State capital.

On the merger of Agriculture and Rural Development in one Ministry, Governor Eno reasoned that Agriculture is majorly practiced in the rural setting where there is the availability of farmlands, saying that the two are strongly related and needed to be brought together for proper implementation of the A.R.I.S.E Agenda.

Meanwhile, Governor Eno has ordered the immediate disbandment of the Management team of Ibom FADAMA Microfinance Bank over its inability to achieve its fundamental objective of assisting farmers with credit facilities.

The State Governor, who frowned at the Management team, urged for a functional team to ensure results.

He encouraged collaborations among MDAs, explaining that a situation where parastatals choose to stand alone, not benefitting from or leveraging on the works of other MDAs will have to be played down to avoid waste of time and resources.
