Written by on June 9, 2023

Plateau state Governor, Caleb Mutfwang has reversed some appointments made by the immediate past Governor of the state, Simon Lalong, including the appointment of Permanent Secretaries and recruitment into the state civil service.

This is contained in a statement issued by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Gyang Bere.

The statement notes that all those who have retired but are yet to vacate their offices or duty posts either due to extension or contract appointment are to hand over any Government property in their possession and vacate office immediately.

All Civil Servants and persons appointed Permanent Secretaries from January 2023 to date have also been directed to revert to their previous positions forthwith.

The statement adds that other measures and steps towards strengthening and building a result-oriented Civil Service will be taken in due course by the administration.

The adhoc committee investigating the petition boarding on financial impropriety calls on the Governor of Plateau state, Barrister Caleb Mutfwang to direct the reversal of all auctions on buildings and lands carried out by all local government council involved. 

Chairman of the committee, Honourable Pirfa Tyem stated this while reading the report on the investigation during plenary at the Plateau state House of Assembly in Jos. 

He said from the investigation carried out, there was no proper documentation on how money in most of the Local Governments were spent or can be accounted for.

Also member representing Shendam, Honourable, Livinus James raised a matter of urgent attention as he called on the government and State Emergency Management Agency SEMA, to intervene on the collapsed bridges that led to a flooding which washed away farm lands preventing farmers from crossing to neighbouring villages to carry out their daily farming activities.

Similarly, Honourable Daniel Nanbol noted that the state government should fund SEMA regularly to enable the agency carry out the humanitarian functions to the people as well as work with National Orientation Agency to create awareness to the public.

The house also screened and confirmed Right Honorable John Bull as Chairman of the Plateau state House of Assembly Service Commission alongside six other members.
