Speaking on Monday, after receiving the reports of the transition and strategic development framework committees for Plateau State, which were led by professor, Ganyir Lombin, Governor Mutfwang expressed his determination to lead the state to greater heights despite the colossal debt profile.

During his address, Governor Mutfwang also emphasized his readiness to confront the pressing security challenges that have plagued the state.

“Throughout the campaign season, we were under the mistaken belief that our debt burden was around N200 billion; to hear that it is N307 billion is quite intimidating and worrisome,” he said.

“But, by the special grace of God, these challenges we are confronted with are surmountable. Of particular concern is the issue of insecurity which, unfortunately, has become a major distraction for us.

“But we are confident that with the new security chiefs on the ground and the special adviser on security assuming responsibility, we will see a difference not too long from now.”

The governor promised to meticulously study the document presented to him, adding that further investigation will be conducted and appropriate action will be taken.
