The Governor of Nagaland, on the advice of the Chief Minister, has allocated portfolios and business of the government to various officials, including Neiphiu Rio as Chief Minister for Finance, P&AR, important policy issues, and all other portfolios not allotted to any minister. In addition, various cabinet ministers and advisors to the government have been appointed to help ensure that the vast and practical experience of the Members of Nagaland Legislative Assembly is utilized for the benefit of the public.
