Don’t use contract awards to assess me — Plateau Speaker
The Speaker, Plateau State House of Assembly, Hon. Peter Ajang Azi, has said he doesn’t have power to award or execute contracts.
The speaker said this in a statement signed by his Director, Press Affairs, Atang Izam Atang, and made available to newsmen in Jos yesterday.
He said his attention was drawn to a publication by one Haroon Yusuf Abba in the Daily Trust newspaper of Monday July 10, 2017 which accused him of performing below par.
He said he decided to react due to the malicious content of the letter and to put records straight.
The statement said it was under the leadership of the speaker that the house passed 17 bills into law, considered 30 motions and brought 28 matters of urgent public importance to the fore.
“Among my achievements are the renovation of a four classrooms, construction of drainage of about 300 metres, provision of 70 desks to an Islamiyya Primary School and facilitating of admissions of students into university,” the statement read.
He advised the politicians to refrain from hiring youths and turning them into agents of destruction through political thuggery, writing false publications and the assassination of hard acquired reputations of individuals.
