The member representing Pankshin, Kanke, Kanam Federal Constituency of Plateau State, Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, has congratulated the new Minister of Labour and Employment, Simon Bako Lalong, on his inauguration, describing his appointment as a round peg in a round hole.
Gagdi, who is also the chairman, House of Representatives Committee On Navy, said he has no doubt about the capacity and competence of the immediate past governor of Plateau State to deliver in his new assignment as a minister in the cabinet of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“On this occasion of your inauguration as the Minister of Labour and Employment in the ‘Renewed Hope’ cabinet of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, I celebrate you and dare say it is a testimony of your unrivaled record as having the most labour-friendly administration in Plateau State, when you held sway as the Governor for eight years.
“As the leader of the All Progressive Congress in Plateau State, we have never doubted your competence and capacity to represent Plateau State competently in the Federal Executive Council.
“You have always proven your capability in every task assigned to you; the most recent being successfully leading APC’s presidential campaign to a resounding victory in the 2023 elections.
“As you brace up to tackle the prevalence of unemployment among Nigerian youths, as well as ensuring that the wages of Nigerian workers can be dignifying for their labour to the fatherland, we are confident that you will justify the trust reposed in you by Mr President and make Plateau State proud in this assignment”, he said.
