Plateau House of Assembly has suspended all the local government council chairmen and councilors across the 17 council areas of the state with immediate effect.
Speaker of the State Assembly, Ayuba Abok announced the suspension this Thursday citing financial misappropriation.
He also attributed the suspension to the refusal of the local government chairmen to submit their financial reports since August 2022 despite several notices to them.
The house directed the suspended council chiefs to hand over all government properties in their possessions to the directors of personnel management in their respective councils.
Meanwhile, the Plateau House of Assembly has confirmed the nomination of Philemon Daffi as a State Attorney General.
