The Deputy Governor further noted that the state government was non-discriminatory in dealing with agencies of the other tiers of government, assuring that it would assist NOA to deliver on its statutory mandate
For instance, he listed support so far given to health institutions, like the University of Benin Teaching Hospital and Irrua Specialist Hospitals, which provided medical equipment and built isolation centres during the COVID 19 pandemic which earned the state an enviable scorecard as a reference point for other states to emulate.
According to Hon. Shaibu, its resolve to collaborate with other government agencies, whether federal or otherwise, was for the reason that those agencies are in the service of the Edo people which is sacrosanct to the service delivery aspiration of the current administration under their leadership.
Earlier in his introductory remarks, the Edo NOA boss, Mr Odile requested collaboration from the state to be able to effectively carry out its mandate.
