Plateau State Governor, Simon Lalong has tasked residents to support the incoming administration to foster progress in the state.
He appealed to the people of the State to give the incoming administration the support they accorded him during his tenure especially in the area of peace and security which is very crucial to any development.
Speaking on Thursday while commissioning the remodeled Nigerian Union of Journalists (NUJ) Press center in Jos, Lalong expressed hope that the incoming administration will carry the people along and shun any divisive tendency that could disrupt continuity in governance.
"Today is a historic day in the history of Plateau State and that of the APC-led Rescue Administration as we commission some of the projects we have executed over the years. These projects cutting across various sectors are of significance to the people and have impact on their lives.
"You will recall that our administration has been guided by the policy vision anchored on Peace, Security and Good Governance; Infrastructural Development; and Sustainable Economic Rebirth.
"Since morning we have been commissioning projects in the northern senatorial zone which flow along the rescue vision and are critical to the progress of the State.
"Some of the projects we commissioned are the Riyom General Hospital; the Water Treatment Plant Riyom; the Kuru Ginery; the Mineral House Bukuru; the Legacy Primary School Bukuru; the NewMap project at Chononpong; the Creche at the State Secretariat; the Modern Printing Press at the Nigerian Standard; the Polo-Roundabout, Rwang Pam road network; the Nassarawa Pediatric Hospital; the security outpost in Haske Quarters as well as the Construction equipment at Fursa among others.
"Without doubt, these are projects that focus on education, security, economy and general well-being of the people.
"We have through the unveiling of these projects demonstrated that our administration understands the needs of the people and has done its best to meet them according to the available resources.
"As you would have noted, some of these projects were initiated by our administration while others were part of those abandoned by previous administration which we decided to continue with.
"It is our firm conviction that projects started with the people’s money must not be allowed to decay because of political differences and personal ego."
