Insecurity: Lalong addresses Plateau Assembly’s resolutions

Plateau State House of Assembly

The Plateau State House of Assembly has said the governor of the State, Simon Lalong, has addressed five of its resolutions over the security situation in the state.

Philip Dasun, Chairman, House Committee on Information, who read the position of the House, said the remaining one was currently being addressed.

Dasun warned that the House would not tolerate any further acts of insecurity and killings in the state.

He said this during a press conference held at the Assembly’s complex to brief the state on the position of the House following the expiration of the two weeks ultimatum given to the governor.

Two weeks ago, the House gave governor Lalong two weeks ultimatum to act on its six resolutions; a visit to affected communities, visit to extend relief materials to victims of the crisis, addressing people of Plateau on the security situation, improving the security situation, suspension of the planned Adhoc teacher’s recruitment and to replace it with the vigilante and local hunters, and to implement the Anti-land-grabbing law.

“We, as an institution, will not condone any act of insecurity and killings in the Plateau henceforth.

“As an arm of government with the People at heart, we are still putting on record that we stand with the people of Plateau and we give assurances of commitment to the course of Plateau and its heritage,” Dasun added.

The House further explained that it was important and a duty to communicate back to the people of the State the outcome of the resolution and the present position of the House.
