Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong on Monday swore-in the new Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Danladi Atu, and the Chief of Staff, Government House, Mr Noel Donjur.
They were appointed last Thursday by the governor.
Speaking on the occasion which took place at the Rayfield Government House in Jos , Lalong reiterated his administration’s commitment to providing dividends of democracy to the people.
The Governor said, “I wish to reaffirm my commitment to delivering good governance to the people of Plateau State in line with our campaign promises, with the support and understanding of everyone. The task though difficult ,is surmountable ,all we need do is always think Plateau and act Plateau.
“We are in our last lap and are resolved that the next four years will be devoted to consolidating on the gains we made and expanding on critical areas of development for the benefit of our people”.
Lalong warned the new appointees not to use their new positions as means for self-aggrandizement but to use their wealth of experiences to serve the people.
He added, “As the next cabinet is being constituted , you will be required to give proper direction, guidance and motivation to all the ministries and agencies of government for effective performance without undue rancour and distractions, you must lead by example and ensure that discipline is maintained and observed throughout the service .”
