Lalong and Plateau governor-elect disagree over transition plans

Written by on April 3, 2023

The outgoing Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong, and the governor-elect, Caleb Mutfwang, have disagreed over plans to hand over the reins of government to a new administration in the state.

Lalong, in a circular issued by the Permanent Secretary, General Services, Peter Wuyep, says he had set up a transition committee that would usher in the new administration led by the opposition Peoples Democratic Party.

The circular, dated March 31, which was sighted by journalists indicates that the inauguration of the transition committee would take place at the Government House today.

Reacting to the planned inauguration of the transition committee, which allegedly excluded members from the incoming administration, the governor-elect, Mutfwang, described the action of the outgoing government led by Simon Lalong as strange and done in bad faith.

Mutfwang, who spoke through the Director of his Media and Publicity Campaign Council, Yiljap Abraham, however, insists that despite their exclusion, the new PDP administration under his leadership would be inaugurated come May 29, having been elected by the people.
