Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State, has said that his administration is taking drastic measures to ensure that officials of the immediate past government who looted the state's funds return them.

Speaking on the occasion of his investiture as Change Pathfinder Governor of the Year 2015 by the Plateau State Social Media Community, held at the Hill Station Hotel, Jos, Lalong said the move is in line with the President Muhammadu Buhari's anti-corruption war.

“The APC government is working to ensure that all funds stolen from the state and country in general are returned to the treasury,” he said.

The Governor who was represented by the state's commissioner of special duties, Hon. Hitler Dadi, also expressed his administration's readiness to partner and identify with the media in all their activities, policies and programmes, by deliberating taking steps towards ensuring a continuous interface with the media and running an open and transparent government

He added, “On resumption of office, I enjoined both the traditional and social mass media to join hands with us to expand the frontiers of development in our dear state and pledged that government would continue to cooperate with you at all times and this I would continue to do.

“Government is not unaware of the fact that the social media platform which, according to the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC), today commands an impressive figure of 140million users, is without doubt, a very veritable and viable platform for multifaceted forms of online media interaction among the citizenry, especially the youths, who cannot be taken for granted."
