Plateau state government yesterday alleged that the sacked local government council chairmen are planning a forceful re entry into office.
The Plateau State government made this known in a press statement signed by Emmanuel Nanle the director of press affairs to the governor.
According to the statement, “the attention of the Plateau State Government has been drawn to a planned forceful re-entry into office by the chairmen of the dissolved executive councils of local government areas.
“Government views this as an affront on the authority of the executive governor on whose directive and pronouncement the councils were dissolved. Government has stated repeatedly that it would not fold it hands and watch citizens engage in acts that are capable of disrupting the fragile peace in the state.
“It is therefore in furtherance to this that the Governor Simon Bako Lalong has directed the Commissioner of Police and all Directors of Personnel Management to ensure the premises of the various local government councils are secured from mischief makers and for all who turn themselves into a threat to peace on the Plateau to be brought to book. There shall be no sacred cows in government’s efforts to ensure the security of lives and properties.
“For the purpose of emphasis the local government executive and legislative councils stand dissolved and the Directors of Personnel Managements (DPMs) are the recognised administrators of the various councils.”
