In its efforts to achieve its mandate of changing the negative perception of the public on government activities and to influence the favourable attitude and behaviour from the citizenry, the Abia State Orientation Agency has begun strategic sessions.
Part of the sessions is a brainstorming session where thinkers drawn from various sectors, especially the media, charted a course of action for the new agency.
The session, with the theme “Disruptions” produced the sound bite “Let’s Get Involved”, colour, and logo of the agency.
Some of the vices identified by participants as factors militating against government’s efforts to better the lots of the people are drug abuse, the public negative attitude towards the infrastructure of government, cultism, deliberate efforts by disgruntled elements to sabotage the efforts of the government.
Others are extortion of the citizens who fake to be acting on the directives of the government, indiscriminate dumping of refuse, chieftaincy tussles in rural communities.
In his remarks, the Director-General of the agency, Godwin Adindu, who stressed the onerous task ahead, noted that the agency in the days ahead will embark on critical engagements to build enough synergy to address some of these problems.
The areas, according to Adindu, in which the agency is expected to intensify relations are traditional institutions, policy moulders and influencers, among others.
