Gov Mutfwang unveils Plateau Security, Information Centre
Gov Caleb Mutfwang of Plateau, on Thursday, in Jos, inaugurated a Security and Information Centre (SIC).
The Centre is aimed at facilitating public access to convey security-related information to relevant authorities for prompt action.
While inaugurating the outfit, Mutfwang explained that it was established by the Plateau State Information and Communication Technology Development Agency (PICTDA).
He added that it would help to bridge the communication divide between the general public and the government.
According to him, the Centre will utilize basic technology to establish a toll-free hotline, allowing citizens to share information without incurring charges, using the phone number 080 0000 5555.
Mutfwang declared that the Centre was already operational, adding that people could begin to call the toll, which cost would be borne by the state government.
The Governor explained that the initiative would serve as a channel for the government to swiftly obtain early warning signals and intervene promptly, while also gathering feedback on developmental matters within the state.
He encouraged citizens to confidently report security concerns from their local communities, with the assurance that all information would be treated with utmost confidentiality.
The Governor added that the Center would be operational round the clock to enable efficient and effective service delivery, whereby citizens would report any issues to the state government for necessary action.
