Plateau Governor Sacks Council Chairman
The Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, is tired of the incessant killings in Bokkos Local Government Area and he is taking an action he believes can address the situation.
He has sacked the Management Committee Chairman of the local government, Simon Angyol.
The decision to remove Angyol was contained in a letter Lalong wrote to the State House of Assembly, which was read on Tuesday by Speaker, Mr Peter Azi.
Angyol was among 16 others, appointed in July 2017 to manage the affairs of the 17 local governments areas, but he did not even serve up to one year.
“Following certain unpleasant development in the management of Bokkos local government council, I wish to seek approval for the removal of Mr Simon Angyol as Management Committee Chairman of the Council.
“I also wish to seek your approval to appoint Mr Tamai Simon as the new Management Committee Chairman of the Council,” he stated.
Members of the House, in a voice vote, approved the removal of Angyol and the subsequent appointment of Simon.
