By Sadiq Abubakar, Abuja.
The senate minority leader, Senator Philip Aduda representing the FCT, along with the honorable commissioner of the Public Complaints Commission (PCC) Ezekiel Dalhatu Musa attended the swearing -in of the newly elected governor of Plateau state, Muftwang Caleb.
Aduda, was also accompanied by his senior special assistant on special duties, Samuel Danjuma Shekwolo.
The governor, while speaking in his inaugural speech in Jos, Plateau state capital on Monday, said he inherited a state with a debt burden of N200 billion.
He said the state is presently under a huge debt burden of over N200 billion, even as he noted that the healthcare sector is in need of urgent attention.
“And our school system requires a comprehensive overhaul, our infrastructure is decayed and inadequate, and practically, every sector requires urgent redress,” he said.
“But in spite of the huge debt the state is currently plagued with, that will not deter us from serving you effectively.
According to him, his administration is committed to breaking the state’s over-dependence on one source of revenue, which he said based in Abuja.
“And we will commit to working on multiple and sustainable income sources so that we can serve you better,” he said.
He added “I must mention that there are no quick-fix solutions to these challenges, but one thing is certain, we are prepared to take the challenges head-on and we will hit the ground running immediately.”
Caleb, appreciated Senate Aduda and commissioner for PCC representing the FCT, Ezikiel Dalhatu Musa along with his entourage for spearing their time to attend his inauguration.
Meanwhile, Senator Aduda, while congratulating the governor for being sworn -in to pilot affairs of the state, expressed confidence that the governor will surely deliver on his campaign promises to the good people of Plateau state.
He, therefore, called on the good people of the state to support the new governor in order to him provide dividend of democracy that will impact positively on their lives.
