Governor Simon Bako Lalong of Plateau State, has charged members of the State Local Government Management Committees to be prudent in the management of resources in the respective Local Governments to reflect the current economic recession in the country.

He stated this while swearing in new members of the council management team for the 17 Local Government Areas in the State

He said: “Your appointment was informed by the need to assemble a team of representatives from amongst our people across the Local Governments to fill in the gap that has been created with the recent dissolution of the Management Committees of the various Councils

The underscore the underlying philosophy of our Rescue Team for a broad based participation and the ability of all stakeholders to subsume any self-serving interest for the greater good of all. This will speak volume of our togetherness and capacity to submit to true democratic ideals for the benefit of all.

“For emphasis and good measure, it is the resolve of this administration that the unique nature of appointments of the Management Committees will deeply entrench robust party activities at the grassroots as well as mobilization of the people. All hands must therefore be on deck to ensure both the successes and sustainability of our noble objectives.

“With the absence of elected Council Chairmen and Councilors, for which we await the conduct of election by the Plateau State Independent Electoral Commission (PLASIEC), Government is concerned with the creation of representative leadership at the Local levels. This composition will guarantee inclusive governance that will guide against the existence of a vacuum in the Local Government Administration. It will also save the Local Government Service from the politicization of its bureaucracy when Civil Servants are allowed to partake in the Political Administration of the Local Government Councils.
