The Governor of Plateau State, Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has described as false and baseless rumours making the round, that the Management Committees of the 17 Local Governments have been dissolved.
A statement signed by the Chief Press Officer, Emmanuel Nanle said that what is even worrisome and unfortunate is the fact that some social media platforms have allowed the transmission of this fictitious information without due recourse to government for verification.
“The Governor wishes to state categorically that these councils are still in place until such time as the Governor approves the dissolution in line with the provision of the law, to pave way for Local Council Elections in the State.
“All those who have used the unfortunate circumstance of this misinformation to remind the Governor with calls expressing their interests in office are to be guided,” it warned.
However, political analysts in the state have castigated the failure of the APC regime in the state.
Expressing concerns, they faulted the government for approving the extension of the present caretaker committee chairmen for the third time without regards to the constitutional provision in the country
