Plateau State Government's Successful Staff Audit Yields N500m Savings
Governor Mutfwang Swears in Commissioners, Announces N500m Savings

Plateau State Governor, Caleb Mutfwang, made a significant announcement on Friday, stating that the State has successfully saved over N500 million following a thorough staff audit conducted to verify the accurate number of employees on the State’s payroll.

The Governor made this revelation during the swearing-in ceremony of 19 Commissioners and the inauguration of the members of the Teachers Service Commission. Addressing the appointees in a gathering held in Jos, Governor Mutfwang urged them to demonstrate their utmost dedication while serving in their respective offices, emphasizing their responsibility to provide valuable services to the people of Plateau State.

During his speech, Governor Mutfwang reminded the appointees that their positions were not meant for personal gains but rather an opportunity to contribute to the improvement of governance in the State. He also pledged to prioritize the inclusion of women and youths in his administration and asked for patience from his supporters as the government works towards progress.

The Governor assured the public that efforts were underway to provide palliative measures to mitigate the effects of economic hardships faced by the citizens. He also reassured civil servants of timely salary payments.

In his address after the swearing-in ceremony, Governor Mutfwang expressed his commitment to involving women in the decision-making process and encouraging the youth to take up leadership roles successfully.

He stated, “For the Commissioners, this is not an opportunity to pursue your selfish goals and desires. You represent the entire Plateau State, and your focus should be on advocating for your fellow citizens. We aim to liberate Plateau State from poverty and insecurity. Your performance will be closely monitored, and those who fail to deliver satisfactorily will make way for others who can add value to the State.”

Governor Mutfwang also shared the success of the staff verification exercise, which saved a substantial sum of N500 million. He urged the public to remain patient while the government works on providing palliative measures to those in need.

Addressing religious leaders, the Governor cautioned against promoting hatred based on faith and assured that he would govern the State with fairness and justice for all.

During the event, Governor Mutfwang assigned portfolios to the newly inaugurated Commissioners, urging them to make a positive impact in their respective offices.

In a vote of thanks, Mrs. Kachollom Gang, who was assigned to the Ministry of Higher Education, pledged to give her best and sought support from citizens for the success of their initiatives.

Similarly, Mrs. Victoria Jatau, Commissioner 1 in the Teachers Service Commission, reiterated her commitment to serving the society and called upon teachers to develop a passion for service, stating, “I am coming to the office to serve, we will build on what our predecessors have done. The standard of education in the nation is abysmally low, and urgent improvement is needed. We are here to motivate teachers for productivity.”

The Governor’s remarks and the determination shown by the newly inaugurated appointees signal a renewed focus on improving the State’s governance, enhancing education, and fostering inclusivity for all citizens of Plateau State.
