Plateau governor, Lalong, dissolves cabinet |

Simon Lalong, governor of Plateau state, has dissolved his cabinet.

Emmanuel Nanle, the governor’s director of press and public affairs, announced this in a statement on Thursday.

The statement did not indicate the reason for the sack of the commissioners.

Lalong directed them to hand over to their permanent secretaries.

He thanked the commissioners for their “selfless” service while assuring them their input in developing the state would be relied upon.

The statement read: “The governor expresses his sincere appreciation to the honourable commissioners for their selfless service and immense contributions these past years, in delivering to the people of Plateau state the dividends of democracy and in engendering hope in the APC-led administration in the state.

“The executive governor while wishing the commissioners the best in their future endeavours assures them that as stakeholders in the Plateau Project, their wealth of experience would continuously be relied upon in building the Plateau of our dream.

“He therefore calls on them not to relent in availing their services when called upon in the future to serve the state.”
