THE Plateau State House of Assembly on Thursday said five out of its six demands had so far been met by Governor Simon Lalong in the wake of the security challenge facing the state.
The Chairman, House Committee on Information, Philip Dasun, stated this in Jos on Thursday while briefing journalists, following the expiration of a two-week ultimatum given to the governor by members of the state House of Assembly to address the problem.
Dasun said, “We gave a six-item resolution to the executive governor to act on within two weeks.
“He has so far been able to address five of the items, remaining one that is ongoing, which is to implement the anti-land grabbing law to enable those occupying illegal lands in Plateau to vacate such lands and native owners to take back their lands.”
The chairman called on the executive to expedite action on the formation of the Anti-Land Grabbing Board to facilitate the process of land recovery.
