Mustapha told the Governor that the agency needs operational vehicles to enhance their revenue generating performance to the state.
According to him, the operational vehicle that the Agency is presently using cannot take them round Ilorin metropolises let alone other local government areas. He said this has greatly hampered the smooth running of the agency for optimal performance.
The Governor was also conducted round various offices in the Information Division unit of the state Ministry of Information during the visit.
