Gov. Simon Lalong of Plateau has congratulated the Minister of Women Affairs and Social Development, Dame
Pauline Tallen, on her 61st birthday, acknowledging her contributions to humanity.
The governor, in a message by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Dr. Makut Macham, on Wednesday in Jos,
commended Tallen for impacting lives.
“Dame Tallen’s achievements over the years are enormous and characterized by selfless service, dedication, and
determination to impact positively on others while carrying out every assignment with diligence and excellence,” the
Lalong appreciated the minister for her contributions in the lives of the people of her home state Plateau and
Nigeria, throughout her political career and service in other sectors spanning many decades.
He, however, urged Tallen to use her current position as a platform to further make the best of her new age by
addressing issues relating to the girl-child, womenfolk and the less privileged in Nigeria.
The governor prayed that God grants her more years of good health, wisdom, and abundance to enable her to
continue impacting positively on society.
