Plateau State House of Assembly Collaborates With PPBA To Further Strengthen Coordination Role Of The Agency

As part of a broader effort of the Legislature to strengthen the Organisational capacity of PPBA, the Plateau State House of Assembly Standing Committee on Peace, Security and Labour has called for a review of the law establishing the Agency to further strengthen its coordination role in the state. The committee also promised to collaborate with PPBA to decentralize the activities of the agency to ensure that the presence of the agency is established in all the seventeen local government areas of the state. These were part of resolutions reached when the Chairman, Hon. Peter Gyendeng and members of the committee played host to the Director General, Joseph Lengmang, Directors and other Team Leads of the agency at the assembly complex in Jos on Wednesday February 24, 2021. The meeting further resolved to continually engage with issues of conflict in a systematic fashion especially reported cases of land grabbing across some LGAs in the state. While presenting the Strategic Plan 2018-2022 (Road Map to Peace) of the agency to the committee, the Director General of PPBA, Lengmang commended the present government and other development partners like GIZ, United States Institute of Peace, USIP, United States Embassy, Abuja and TEARFUND, amongst others for their support even as he added that the agency was already engaging with wide range of stakeholders to entrench enduring peace in the state.
