Governor of Plateau State, Simon Lalong, on Friday swore 17 commissionersinto the state executive council.
Among those appointed into the cabinet is Mrs Tamwakat Weli who will serve as Honorable Commissioner of Finance.
Lalong advised the commissioners to consider themselves as servant-leaders who would serve selflessly, diligently and faithfully with the fear of God.
“As you come on board as commissioners and members of State Executive Council, you are first in line as policy formulators and co-drivers of these policies in various ministries assigned to you.
The responsibility is not about glamour of office, but of absolute responsibility in terms of exercising political, economic and social authority for the welfare of the people,” he said.
