About The Ministry of Information (EKSG)

The Ministry of Information started off as a department under Bureau of Arts and Culture in the General Administration Department of the Governor’s Office at the inception of Ekiti State in 1996. It later evolved to become Ministry of Information, Youth, Sports and Culture shortly before the transition from Military to Civilian rule. At the commencement of civil rule in May, 1999, it became a directorate under the office of the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor/Head of information Directorate in 1999. It was however upgraded to a full-fledged Ministry in 2003 with the nomenclature ‘Ministry of Information, Youth, Sports and Social Development’.
