Ag Gov. Onyebuchi of Enugu joins campaign for access to information

-

Acting Governor of Enugu State, Sunday
Onyebuchi has joined the campaign for freedom
information, saying, it is necessary to ensure transparency and accountability in governance.
Speaking at the South East zonal sensitisation workshop on the Freedom of Information Act, 2011, in Owerri yesterday, Onyebuchi said information was required for every constructive input in governance.
The acting governor who was represented by the Permanent Secretary of the state ministry of justice, Mrs Chiemelie Onaga, said the Act was aimed at ensuring that the press and public had unhindered access to information.
“The general public and the press are encouraged to take advantage of the provisions of this law and check the growing propensity in our public service for gratification.
“It is hoped that participants will make useful contributions that will ensure that this law takes root in Nigeria,” he said.
Also speaking, Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo said the citizenry should be given access to information to appreciate or criticise the government.
Okorocha, who was represented by his deputy, Mr Jude Agbaso, said freedom of information was the culture in Imo.
