PLSG sets up committees for resettling IDPs, others




THE Plateau State Government has set up a committee to ensure that all displaced persons were returned to their ancestral homes alongside three other committees to assist government handle some complaints from the citizens about the maladministration of the past government.

Governor Caleb  Mutfwang, who inaugurated the committees at the Twin Theatre, New Government House, Little Rayfield, Jos, recently, charged members to take the responsibility seriously because, ” What you do or fail to do will have an impact on the future”.

The governor said displaced persons would be returned to their homes and would cultivate their land which was left unattended to for some years.

According to the governor, the present administration came on board not knowing the extent to which some of the institutions have been misused, adding that as a responsible government, they cannot fold their arms and watch the unwanted being perpetrated.

“We have been inundated with a lot of complaints, especially arising from the last exercises in which chiefdoms were created, districts created and some upgraded and i can tell you that some of the complaints can be pretty funny,” he stressed.

On land administration, Mutfwang said due process was not followed in following the Jos-Bukuru master plan and urged the committee to look into it.

Responding on behalf of the members, Barrister Isaac Dimka, thanked the governor for finding them worthy to serve in their capacities.

He promised that they would not disappoint the people of the state, stressing that the committees were made up of people of proven integrity.

The committees include Committee to Review the Structure and Performance of Plateau State Civil Service, Committee on Complaints Arising from the 2015 Upgrade of Chiefdoms, Creation of Districts and Villages, Committee on Land Administration in Plateau State and the Task Force for Resettlement of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), in the state.
