Former PLHA members applaud Lalong for revamping Plateau economy

Forum of former members of the Plateau State House of Assembly has commended Governor Simon Bako Lalong led administration for revamping the economy of the state.
The group particularly applauded the governor for signing a Memorandum of Understanding for the reconstruction of the Ultra-Modern Jos Main Market as well as resuscitating the ailing BARC Farms, Jos International Breweries (JIB), Britvic Bottling Company, Bokkos Fertilizer Blending Plant and the Panyam Fish Farm among others.
According to the forum in a press statement signed by its interim Chairman and Secretary, Hon. Maimako Bello Kwanwatu and Hon Victor Samson and made available to pressmen in Jos, the forum called on the government to focus more on the diversification of the state economy through agriculture, tourism and solid minerals in order to improve the revenue base of the state which it noted would further create opportunities for employment.
The statement lauded the government for its efforts at completing uncompleted projects and embarking on new ones, adding “we commend the governor for the giant strides recorded so far on the security situation in the state and we urge him to keep the tempo”.
“While appreciating the people of the state for supporting one of their our own, Rt. Hon. Barr. Simon Lalong in the last general election,” the group said the governor would not disappoint them and commended him for the settlement of arrears of salaries of civil servants up to June 2016 as well as for the reopening and resolving the crisis that had rocked the Plateau State University.
The statement read in part “it is the sincere prayer of the Forum that God Almighty will grant him the wisdom and protection as he pilots the affairs of the state”.

  1. I want to comment the efforts of Gov Lalong for all the steps taken to see that these companies come to life. This will not only be sources of revenue to the state, but many of our youths will gain employment. It is my earnest prayer that we will one day in the nearest future witness the commissioning of these companies IJN.
