PLATEAU State Governor, Simon Lalong has stated his administration’s plans to revive and create new chiefdoms, districts and villages, which were dissolved by the immediate past administration in the state.

Lalong said that his intention to create this is aimed at ensuring justice, protect cultural values and bring development nearer to the people.

The governor disclosed this during the presentation of a book titled “Who are The Goemai?” at the weekend. The book, authored by Stephen Seriki Musa, Fidelis Longban and Dogara Hassan is focused on fostering unity and peaceful co-existence within the Goemai people, Plateau State and the country at large.

The Long-Goemai of Shendam, Hubert Shaldas II, represented by Longdoro Miscom David Isah Dongban, honoured Lalong with a shield and spear on the occasion, which he said is symbolic of the governor’s role as a protector of the Goemai people and the entire state.

Responding, Lalong urged the people to support his administration’s plans to create chiefdoms, districts and villages to fast-track development.

Minister for Youth and Sports Development, Solomon Dalong, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Rufus Bature; Chairman, Management Committee of Shendam local council, Alex Nantuan and other personalities graced the event.
