Plateau State Governor Simon Lalong signed the Plateau Traditional Rulers Remuneration Bill 2020 into law on Wednesday.
The governor stated during the signing ceremony at Government House Jos that the law would support traditional leaders in carrying out their responsibilities.
He described leaders as cultural custodians, critical in maintaining peace and security in their various domains and critical in accelerating 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 the formulation of such laws 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.
