The Executive Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon (Dr) Simon Bako Lalong, has approved the resignation from office of the Secretary to the State Government, Hon. Rufus Bature, forthwith.
Bature recently resigned his appointment to enable him contest for the seat of Plateau North Senatorial District Senator
in the 2019 elections.
Consequently, the Governor has approved the appointment of Sir Richard Tokma (mni), who is the Permanent Secretary, Policy & General Services in the office of the SGS to replace him as the Acting SGS immediately.
In a statement by Mark Longyen,
Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media & Publicity, he said the Governor has also approved forthwith the resignation from office of the Hon. Commissioner for Special Duties and Intergovernmental Relations, Hon Hitler Dadi.
Dadi also recently resigned from office to enable him contest for the election into the Federal House of Representatives, representing Langtang North and South Constituency in the 2019 polls.
The Governor thanked the duo and other appointees who also recently resigned in order to pursue their political aspirations for their invaluable services to the state generally and, particularly, for their immeasurable contributions to the success of the Rescue Administration in the past three years.
Governor Lalong wished all of them the best of luck in their political aspirations and future endeavors.
