The Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, has relaunched the Nigerian National Information Portal.

The Minister, who launched the portal at the commencement of the Ministerial Sectoral Briefings to mark the first anniversary of the Tinubu Administration, stated that it was the official digital gateway to comprehensive information about Nigeria.

He explained that the portal was in existence before but was badly managed adding that the Ministry has opted to resuscitate the “new portal.”

The minister noted that the portal serves as a centralized source for both local and international audiences to obtain reliable and up-to-date information on various aspects of the nation.

He added the portal will also have information about the people of Nigeria and their cultural heritage.

“We use this opportunity to launch the Nigerian National Information Portal. Of course, it was in existence before but it has been so badly managed that the Federal Ministry of Information and National Orientation has resuscitated this new portal.

“It is a gateway to all the information you require to know about this government; about Nigeria, people, and our cultures. So, join me in clapping for Nigeria for having this relaunched new National Information Portal,” he said.
