Commissioner of Information and Orientation, Donald Ojogo, stated this on Friday.

He expressed that the finances of the state have been negatively affected just like every other state.

According to him: “No single state is insulated from the ravaging pandemic and its adverse economic effects.

“Revenue generation has to tow to the situation because only a productively engaged populace can earn revenue.

“It is natural for every segment of society to begin to prioritize its expenditure.”
