The Plateau State House of Assembly has approved the list of caretaker committee for the 17 Local Government Areas sent to it by the State Governor Simon Lalong. The House today went ahead and adopt the list despite protest from the opposition party members in the house.
The communication which was read at the floor of the house by the Speaker, Rt. Hon Peter Azi, was adopted by members through a voice vote.
It would be recalled that since Lalong’s assumption to office the Chairmen who were viewed by many as the former governor’s loyalists have been making frantic efforts to remain in office and even went ahead to secured a court injunction to restrain the governor from dissolving them, despite that, the Governor went ahead and dissolved the executive and legislative arms in the 17 LGAs of the State on the 6th July 2015.
