Plateau State governor Barr. Caleb Mutfwang has disclosed that as part of the efforts to cushion the effect of the fuel subsidy removal work to reactivate rail transportation with the Greater Jos Master Plan, covering key locations within Jos-North and Jos South has commenced.
According to him, they are hopeful that these services will commence soon and expansion across other parts of the state would also begin adding that significant progress is also being made by his administration through the Plateau State Direct Labour Agency in road maintenance across Jos-Bukuru metropolis.
Mutfwang stated this during the state broadcast on the current political development that several roads are undergoing maintenance to ensure their utility whereas, as professionally advised; road renewal projects will commence in the dry season to ensure durability of constructed infrastructure.
He further said the Jos metropolis is wearing a new outlook, following the evacuation of refuse heaps that had littered our neighbourhoods stressing that this will be sustained with the monthly sanitation exercise for which I encourage total compliance and active citizens’ participation.
Our values of cleanliness must be upheld so that we reset our state to global standards of hygiene and tourism. He said, “By the Grace of God, I dare say we cannot fail.’’
We have constituted the State Executive Council; several appointments have been made, while others are yet underway, towards providing a full complement for the vehicle of government to operate.”
The governor enjoined the citizens of the state to keep faith with his administration as well as constructively engage all government institutions as they refocus them to provide service to the people while imploring them not to allow anything to alter the trust and confidence they have in this administration.
According to the governor, he owes Plateau a debt of good governance, for which he intends to pay adding that by God’s grace they will not disappoint them as they will work hard to take the state to higher heights .
