A group under the auspice of Concerned Indigenes of Amper District (CIAD) Kanke LGA has appealed to the Executive Governor of Plateau State, His Excellency Barr. Caleb Mutfwang to consider the zone in his appointments. The group commended the Governor for the laudable steps he has taken to tackle the insecurity bedeviling the State as well as to return it to its past glory.
It said in the appointments made so far in Kanke LGA, the zone has not benefited despite being the zone that gave the PDP good support in the local government area.
The statement reads;
Barrister Caleb Mutfwang,
An Appeal by Concerned Indigenes of Amper District in Kanke LGA .
We, the aforementioned Indigenes of Amper District of Kanke LGA of Plateau State congratulate Your Excellency on your recent inauguration as the Executive Governor of our dearest State.
We commend your efforts in trying to stem the tide of insecurity and return the State to its past glory. Your recent appointments into various offices of responsibilities is a clear testimony to this fact.
However, we as members of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from Amper Zone appear to have been neglected in this few appointments made so far.
It’s a fact that our Zone produced one of highest votes for our Party during the last general elections in the LGA.
While appreciating the fact that so far, the government under your able leadership has appointed four of our son’s into some offices, our zone feel sidelined with such appointments.
We are saddened that of all the appointments made so far, Garram and Kabwir Zones appear to have been loaded with all the appointments without due consideration to Amper Zone as in the spirit of rotational principle of fair play in the Local Government Area.
Your Excellency, more worrisome to us as loyal Party faithfuls, is the recent development where two of our sons from our Zone and the only Ngas Sons from Kanke in Government were removed from offices even when their tenures were yet to expire.These include the Chief Medical Director of Plateau Specialist Hospital(CMD)and General Manager of Plateau Rural Water Supply and Sanitation Agency ( PRUWASSA).
Sadly New CMD for Plateau Specialist Hospital has already been appointed .
We had expected that based on the zoning formula that the LGA has been practicing over the years, the recent appointment of a TIC Chairman and Commissioner would have been zoned to us not Garam and Kabwir zones respectively which short changed us twice in the last dispensation.
We are therefore appealing to Your Excellency to critically look at these issues of concern dispassionately and ensure that equity and justice prevail so as to give every part of the Local Zones a sense of belonging .
While expecting a positive response to our plight, we wish you a successful tenure as the Executive Governor of our dearest State.
Concerned Indigenes of Amper District.(CIAD)
