Governor Simon Lalong of Plateau State has sent warm felicitations to the Long Gamai of Shendam, His Royal Highness Miskoom Martin Shaldas III on the occasion of his 68th birthday.
Governor Lalong in a message rejoiced with the Royal Father for witnessing another year, praying God to continue to grant him good health, peace and protection.
Lalong praised the Long Gamai who is the Vice Chairman of the Plateau State Council of Traditonal Rulers and Emirs for his leadership qualities that have brought development to his subjects and the entire State.
He said the first class ruler has been a pillar of support for the consolidation of peace and harmonious relations in Plateau State as well as an advocate for the promotion of entrepreneurship, productivity and youth empowerment in Plateau State.
Lalong appreciated the Long Gamai for his readiness all the times to offer counsel and guidance to Government on key issues through the traditional council and other channels, particularly at difficult times.
The Governor said the Royal Father has in recent times demonstrated great leadership by mobilising, advocating and enlightening the public on issues such as COVID-19 and Community Policing which are matters that the Government is handling with all seriousness.
