Yusuf Gagdi, a member of the house of representatives, has congratulated Simon Lalong on his swearing-in as minister of labour and employment.

Lalong, a former governor of Plateau, and 44 other appointees took the oath of office as ministers on Monday before President Bola Tinubu in Abuja.

In a statement congratulating Lalong, Gagdi, who represents Pankshin/Kanke/Kanam federal constituency of Plateau, said the former governor’s appointment as a minister is based on merit.

“On this occasion of your inauguration as the Minister of Labour and Employment in the ‘Renewed Hope’ cabinet of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, I celebrate you and dare say it is a testimony of your unrivalled record as having the most labour-friendly administration in Plateau State when you held sway as the Governor for eight years,” the statement reads.


“As the leader of the All Progressive Congress in Plateau State, we have never doubted your competence and capacity to represent Plateau State competently in the Federal Executive Council.

“You have always proven your capability in every task assigned to you, the most recent being successfully leading APC’s presidential campaign to a resounding victory in the 2023 elections.

“As you brace up to tackle the prevalence of unemployment among Nigerian youths, as well as ensure that the wages of Nigerian workers can be dignifying for their labour to the fatherland, we are confident that you will justify the trust reposed in you by Mr President and make Plateau State proud in this assignment.”


Gagdi, who chairs the committee on the navy, added that Lalong will drive the president’s agenda in the labour ministry.
