Governor Appoints 136 Aides
OpenLife Nigeria reports that just days after Senator Remi Tinubu donated the sum of N500m to 500 families affected by violent conflicts in six local government areas of Plateau State, Governor Caleb Mutfwang has appointed 136 aides.
The appointment is contained in a statement by the governor’s director of press and public affairs, Gyang Bere, on Friday in Jos.
According to the statement, those appointed are the first batch of aides whose portfolios would be communicated through their respective local government councils.
The governor picked eight appointees from each of the 17 LGAs.
Remi Tinubu who was in Jos on Tuesday to make the donation and commiserate with the victims, encouraged them not to lose hope as her husband and other stakeholders work to ensure enduring peace in communities.
Speaking at the Government House, the First Lady who is also the Chairperson of Renewed Hope Initiative Foundation, said, “I am aware of the unfortunate crisis that bedevilled the State, particularly Mangu people.
The report got me worried and concerned about the destruction of peace of the affected families. I can imagine the destruction of lives and properties.
A time like this is not to come and express our sympathies, but to take concrete actions to alleviate the sufferings of those affected. That is why we are here today, not just to sympathise with you but to offer our meagre support
“This N500 million is our modest support to enable affected families to renew their lives as we provide them with the means to renew their shelter and other essential needs.
To the affected families, I want you to know that you are not alone in the journey of recovery, we stand with you in solidarity and prayers. I urge you not to lose hope but to have faith in God.”
