Plateau State Governor, Hon. Simon Bako Lalong has said the year 2020 holds great prospects and hope for accelerated development of Plateau State as his Rescue Administration settles down to pursue its 3-point policy thrust that will consolidate on its past efforts.
In a new year message, Governor Lalong acknowledged the huge support and cooperation of the people of Plateau State since assuming office which he said was demonstrated in 2019 when he was returned to office by massive votes of the electorate.
According to the Governor, “the year 2020 will be quite eventful as we put behind us the distractions of elections litigation and focus on delivering on the dividends of democracy to our people especially in completing the legacy projects we have initiated in all parts of the State.
We shall commission many of them and also ensure that others are given the desired priority attention”.
Lalong however said with the 2020 budget already signed into law, there will be no time to waste as the machinery of government will be kept active to deliver quality, prompt and selfless service to the people.
He then charged the people of the State to build on the peace already pervading the entire State so as to make it easy for investors to come in with their resources and knowledge to create jobs and other economic opportunities.
The Governor believed that the Plateau State Investment and Economic Summit which will be hosted in 2020 will be a watershed for opening up the economic potentials of the State to the world.
Lalong wishes the entire citizens a prosperous new year and urges them to continue to pray for the peace of Plateau State and Nigeria as a whole while also embracing one another in the spirit of forgiveness, reconciliation and brotherhood.
