A statement signed by the Senator’s Special Assistant on Media and publicity, Abdul Lauya said the appointments spread across the 40 Wards in the four local government areas of Balanga, Billiri, Kaltungo, and Shongom in the state.
Mr Lauya added that the appointment comprised of two Personal Assistants, PAs, from each ward, and 38 Special Assistants, SAs.
