Simon Bako Lalong, governor of Plateau State, has dissolved the state executive council with effect from Thursday, February 8, 2018.
While expressing appreciation to the commissioners for their selfless service and immense contributions to his government in delivering to the people of the state the dividends of democracy and in engendering hope in the All Progressives Congress (APC)-led administration in the state, Lalong wished the outgoing commissioners the best in their future endeavours.
In a press statement signed by Mr. Emmanuel Nanle, the governor’s director of press, Lalong assured them that as stakeholders in the Plateau Project, their wealth of experience would continuously be relied upon “in building the Plateau of our dream”.
The governor thanked the Commissioners and directed them to hand over to Permanent Secretaries in their respective Ministries.
The statement reads: “Rt. Hon. Simon Bako Lalong, The Executive Governor of Plateau State, has dissolved the State Executive Cabinet with effect from the 8th of February 2018.
“The Governor expresses his sincere appreciation to the Honourable Commissioners for their selfless service and immense contributions in delivering to the people of Plateau State, the dividends of democracy and in engendering hope in the All Progress Congress-led administration in the State.
“The Executive Governor while wishing the Commissioners the best in their future endeavours assures them that as stakeholders in the Plateau Project, their wealth of experience would continuously be relied upon in building the Plateau of our dream.
He, therefore, calls on them not to relent in availing their services when called upon in the future to serve the State. The Honourable Commissioners are to hand over to Permanent Secretaries in their respective Ministries.”
Sources claim that the decision was to inject fresh blood into his government that would pave way for his planned reelection in 2019
