A pro-democracy group, Citizens Observers Hub is warning the Governor-elect of Plateau state, Barrister Caleb Mutfwang to beware of political jobbers and hangers on as he assumes office in May this year.
Convener of the group, Chris Iyama who sounded the note of warning at a press conference in Jos says if he distances himself from such persons, it would enable him to perform as he pledged during his electioneering campaign to take the state to greater heights.
Iyama who is also the Executive Director, Centre for Youth Participation, Dialogue and Advocacy, CYPA Africa, reminded the governor elect that his mandate came from the people and not godfathers, hence the need to deliver dividends of democracy to the citizens.
The group notes that it is important for the incoming administration to swing into action and look at those critical projects which the outgoing administration refused to complete such as the National Library – Abattoir Connecting Bridge and road networks, Agric Services Training Center and Marketing Limited, ASTC, Jos Main Market rebuilding project, rejuvenation of Operation Rainbow, among others.
While urging the incoming administration to equally consider the possibility of appointing 30 percent of young persons who are experts in their field of endeavours, into public offices, to enable them contribute their own quota towards achieving his development aspirations for Plateau state.
The group says it will continue to monitor the unfolding development and ensure the enthronement of good governance in the state.
