Ministerial slot: Lalong a round peg in a round hole – Gagdi 

Chairman of the House of Representatives Committee on Navy, Yusuf Adamu Gagdi, has described the portfolio allocation of Minister of Labour and Employment to former governor of Plateau state, Simon Lalong as a choice of a round peg for a round hole.

In a congratulatory message, Gagdi said for him making it into the ‘Renewed Hope’ cabinet of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, “I celebrate you and dare say it is a testimony of your unrivaled record as having the most labour friendly administration in Plateau State, when you held sway as the Governor for eight years”.

The former governor, he said “As the leader of the All Progressive Congress in Plateau State, we have never doubted your competence and capacity to represent Plateau State competently in the Federal Executive Council. You have always proven your capability in every task assigned to you; the most recent being successfully leading APC’s presidential campaign to a resounding victory in the 2023 elections.

“As you brace up to tackle the prevalence of unemployment among Nigerian youths, as well as ensuring that the wages of Nigerian workers can be dignifying for their labour to the fatherland, we are confident that you will justify the trust reposed in you by Mr President and make Plateau State proud in this assignment.

“Once again, congratulations to Nigeria’s Minister of Labour and Employment, Rt Hon. Simon Bako Lalong.”
