The Plateau Youth G17 group has called on Gov. Simon Lalong to consider young people and be gender sensitive when appointing his next set of Commissioners.

This according to it is to engender "credibility, technical competence, integrity, experience and above all fear of God in the next Commissioners which was lacking in the immediate past commissioners."

A statement by its Coordinator, Musa Bagos regrets that youth and women were absent in the dissolved cabinet.

Expressing delight over the dissolution of the cabinet, the group said, "There is need to have youth appointed commissioners and women should be given attention in the next appointment as women representation in the past commissioners were poor.

"The Governor should be well-guided in his choices and not place compensation of party loyalists without sound competencies and capabilities.

"Credible and competent Commissioners with proven integrity and good antecedents have the propensity to taking the State to greatness and development.

"There are young people and women who over time have demonstrated enough capacities, competence, credibility, integrity, expertise and fear of God that could be considered for appointments across the 17 LGAs to transform the fortunes of the State and take the State to enviable height.

"There are many young professionals who are excelling and doing the State and nation proud who could be called to serve as Commissioners."
