There are indications that the much-sought after tenure extension for Plateau State council chairmen would be achieved once the State House of Assembly reconvene on Thursday. The Management Committee chairmen may be given another two months extension by the lawmakers.
It would be recalled that the House of Assembly had proceeded on a four-wek break without extending the tenure of the Council Chairmen which expires tomorrow.
It was gathered that the House could not discuss the tenure elongation of the Council Chairmen before embarking on recess because they did not get a nod from Governor Simon Lalong who was in China at the time.
A member of the Plateau State House of Assembly, who did not want his name on print, told the Daily Times that the extension in office, of the Management Committee Chairmen depended largely on the position of Governor Lalong.
