Plateau State Governor, Simon Bako Lalong yesterday approved the dissolution of the 17 local government councils of the state.
In a statement signed by the Secretary to State Government, Rufus Bature yesterday, the Governor directed all the dissolved chairmen of councils, all members of the executive arm, councillors and other political appointees to hand over all government properties in their possession to the Directors of Personnel Management, DPM, of the local government councils.
The statement also directed that, “All security operatives in the various local governments and particularly the Divisional Police Officers, DPOs and members of the various labour unions in the local governments are to ensure that all government properties are secured in the custody of all the Directors of Personnel Managements in line with this directive.”
In a similar development, Governor Lalong has approved the appointment of Mrs. Hulda Fwangchi as the New Head of Civil Service of the State.
Until her appointment, Mrs. Hulda Fwangchi was a Permanent Secretary with the Plateau State government. She replaces Mr. Ezekiel Dalyop who until then was the Head of Service of the State.
The Governor also thanked all members of the dissolved local government councils and the out-gone Head of Service for their selfless service and wished them the best in their future endeavours.
