The event was witnessed by the Speaker of the House, Gabriel Dewan, the state Chief Judge, Justice David Mann, Chief of Staff Government House, the Head of Service; and cabinet members.

The governor said: “We met a state of affairs where critical sectors of Plateau existence were in tatters and years of neglect have resulted in institutions and infrastructure rundown beyond what to manage.

“We are therefore determined that we will lay a new foundation and give our people a future and hope. The implementation of this budget will start a new culture of maintenance, excellence, and having Plateau committed to the path of progress and development.”
