Plateau state governor, Simon Lalong on Monday signed three executive bills into law.
Speaking at the occasion at the Government House Conference Hall Little Rayfield, Lalong said, “all these bills as signed into law give credence to our resolve to ensure that institutional structure, policy direction and the provisions of law, define the operations and activities of government.
“Our government has repeatedly assured the people of Plateau State that we will not rest on our oars in ensuring that we address squarely the challenges of security and peace building that we are facing, as well as doing the needful in ensuring that we provide the enabling environment for the economic emancipation of our people.
“As a tripartite action that will drive good governance, therefore, we are taking the second concrete step in consolidating on the peace building effort we have made in the past eight months with the enactment of the law establishing the Peace Building Agency.
“Also, the Plateau State Bureau for Public Procurement will come into place to help in strengthening our institutional approach to ensuring probity and accountability in public procurement. It will also serve as a tool through which government will ensure that its anti-corruption war and fiscal responsibility is given a fillip,” the governor said.
Among the bills signed into law are the bill for the establishment of Bureau for Peace Building and Conflict Resolution, the Bill for a law establishing the Plateau State Microfinance Development Agency and the bill for a law establishing the Plateau State Bureau of Public Procurement.
