Plateau State Government has directed the Accountant General of the state to transfer funds meant for the Legislative and Judicial arms of government.
The directive was issued after the state reached an agreement following series of negotiation on modalities for the full implementation of the autonomy for the two arms of Government in the state.
This was disclosed by Governor Simon Lalong during a dinner and lecture to mark Democracy Day 2021 at the Banquet Hall of the New Government House, Little Rayfield, Jos, Plateau State.
According to him, his administration had put in place structures for autonomy and even implemented some aspects prior to the clamour for implementation of autonomy across the nation.
He said the structures include establishing the Judicial Service Commission and the House of Assembly Service Commission which are the administrative fulcrums of the two arms of Government among others.
Lalong went on to note that he has directed that all funds accruing to the two arms of Government should immediately be transferred to them and said that will continue to be the practice henceforth.
“Based on the arrangement, after every FAAC monthly allocations are recieved and Internally Generated Revenues ascertained, statutory charges and liabilities will be deducted before each arm of Government are given what belongs to them.
