Last week, some of the aggrieved chairmen  threatened to resume work today, disregarding the order which caught the attention of the state government and propmt them to issue a statement which said “Plateau State Government has been drawn to a planned forceful re-entry into office by Chairmen of the dissolved Executive Councils of Local Government Areas on Monday the 13th July, 2015. 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“. The statement went on further to say that “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 turned themselves into a threat to peace on the Plateau to be brought to book saying there shall be no sacred cows in Governments efforts to ensure the security of lives and properties“. the statement conclude by saying that 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.
