The Plateau State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has called for the suspension of the impeachments and suspension of three local government chairmen embarked upon by the legislative arms

A statement signed by the Publicity Secretary of the party, Hon. Sylvanus Namang and made available to newsmen on Saturday, called for calm and peaceful resolution of grievances.

Namang lamented over the news with concerns to the impeachments, suspension  of the Chief Executives in Mangu, Jos North and Langtang North Local Governments in the past two days by the legislative arms of the councils which bordered on the misunderstanding between the two arms of government; the Legislative  and the Executive Arms. 

"Whatever are the merits or demerits of the actions by the Legislative Arms in the said local governments, the APC in the state calls for calm.

"The status quo ante should be maintained in the said local goverments, which is that all the actions taken or purported to have been taken against the Executive Arms should be suspended forthwith.

"The APC is a party built on a solid foundation of law and order and has a very strong dispute resolution mechanism which was not deployed or exhausted in the impeachment, suspension and threats to impeachment of the LG chairmen in question. 

Namang further commended the roles played by Governor Simon Lalong through his Deputy, Professor Sonni Gwanle Tyoden, the Plateau State House of Assembly Committee on Local Government and Chieftaicy Affairs, the Honourable Commissioner of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, the Attorney General and Commissioner of Justice and security agencies in the state for promptly restoring sanity, law and order in the affected local goverments. 

The APC assured the feuding parties and the public that it would dig into the root causes of the Issues in the affected local goverments and sanction any infraction discovered.

The vote of no confidence was passed on the executive chairmen of Mangu and Jos North, Hon Minister and Shehu Bala, by the legislators, where that of Mangu was suspended for 90 days and his deputy impeached.

Jos North was interrupted by hoodlums while the vote of no confidence was passed on the chairman. 

LangtangNorth was a call on the legislative council to impeach the chairman, Hon. Zulfa Rimven.
