The All Progressives Congress (APC) North Central Forum has thrown its support for the creation of a North Central development commission, saying it is now needed more than ever before.

The push for the commission was intensified recently by the senator representing Plateau South Senatorial District and former Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong.

Lalong spoke recently on the floor of the Senate on the motion of urgent public importance moved by Senator Diket Plang (Plateau Central) on the Christmas Eve attacks that left about 150 people dead in Bokkos, Barkin Ladi and Mangu LGAs of the state.

The senator argued that creating the North Central development commission would fast-track the rebuilding of homes and economic activities of the people of the region which has been under relentless attacks by criminals and bandits.

Supporting the senator’s call, the Chairman of the APC forum, Saleh Mandung Zazzaga, said having the commission will not only make the challenges and other unfortunate security situations of the North Central region be tackled but will also enable the region to explore its full potential, utilize them approximately and occupy its pride of place in the nation.
