Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau on Wednesday signed the Plateau Traditional Rulers Remuneration bill 2020, into law.
Speaking at the signing ceremony at Government House Jos, the governor, said that the law would encourage traditional leaders in the discharge of their duties.
He described the leaders as the custodians of culture, who are critical in maintaining peace and security in their various domains, crucial in shoring up development.
He assured them of prompt implementation of the law before he leaves office, saying that Plateau has set an example by the action for other states to emulate.
Lalong said that as the chairman of the Northern Governors Forum, he would encourage his members on the formulation of such law in their various states.
“ I am going to circulate this bill to all the northern governors,” he said.
He thanked the state assembly for their cooperation and contributions to making the law a reality.
