The Governor urged the commission members to work in synergy with the Head of Service to get optimal results.

The governor enjoined the new adviser to team up with the rest of his colleagues in the cabinte so that together, they can contribute to the development of the state.

Our motto is: ‘We stand for the truth, irrespective of who tells it’. Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging. This is why we will appreciate any support from our readers:
