From Tongnaan Bawa, Jos
Plateau State Governor Caleb Mutfwang, has assured Plateau citizens that none would be victimized following the constitution of the committee to review the recent appointment exercise into the State Civil Service.
Governor Mutfwang stated this on Friday during the swearing-in ceremony of the Chief of Staff, Deputy Chief of Staff, four Special Advisers and Members of Plateau State House of Assembly Sevice Commission, held at the New Government House Little Rayfield, Jos.
Governor Mutfwang assured those who have previously been victimized in the civil service of government’s immediate attention to squarely address the issues without any intimidation.
“Let me say this quickly; those who have been appointed to serve in the committee to review the issue of appointment, that we do not intend to witch-hunt anyone. As a matter of fact, the information that we based our action on are coming from citizens and we thought it will be irresponsible not to investigate such complaints.
“We will continue to do all we can to ensure that the process is seamless, fair and just. We won’t threat anyone in isolation and I can assure you that no one will be victimized.
He urged the people to continue to pray for government as it unfolds policies that are beneficial to the State.
He admonished the newly sworn in officers to see their appointments as a responsibility and trust bestowed upon them by Plateau citizens.
The Governor however appealed to citizens not to pull down anyone in the name of lobbying for appointment and assured that all appointments would be made based on merit and every part of the state would be inclusive.
Responding on behalf of the appointees, the Special Adviser on Political Affairs, Latep Dabang, appreciated the Governor for choosing them to serve in their respective capacity.
He assured Governor Mutfwang that the officers would bring to bear their wealth of experience to add value to the administration and ensuring the requisite development Plateau people are yearning for.
