Under the directive of the Executive Governor, the state tried all they could to save the lives of the twins, but lost them as it was already too late.

He stated that the ministry is serious in the fight against malnutrition and showed this by sending about a month ago, a memo to the executive Governor requesting for a budget line for Nutrition in the state ministry health and human services which he stated the Executive Governor graciously approved on the 27th of October, 2015. He also advised all the other ministries to also follow their example by requesting and securing a budget line for Nutrition in their own ministries.

He thus mandated all at the meeting to fully participate in the meeting and that he expects far reaching action points that will help in the fight against malnutrition in the state.
