Edo State governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki has setup Public Building and Maintenance Agency to address the lack of maintenance culture among citizenry.
Obaseki made this known in an update on Social Media on Monday.
According to him: “I have set up the Edo Public Building and Maintenance Agency to ensure that the maintenance of projects undertaken by the government is guaranteed.
“Maintenance is a major concern for us; it’s a cultural thing that we need to change and inculcate in the managers of Government assets and businesses. Maintenance has not been in the culture of governments and it is a part of our weakness.
“As part of our transformation exercise currently going on, maintenance is being emphasized, as we have created Edo Public Building and Maintenance Agency. They are training officers and maintenance managers, informing them on what to do and how to maintain government properties.”
