Governor Fubara swears in 23 LG caretaker chairmen

Rivers State Governor, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, on Wednesday, officially swore in Caretaker Committee Chairmen for all 23 Local Government Councils of the state.

This is coming in barely 24 hours after the Governor removed the Local Council heads installed by former Governor Nyesom Wike following the expiration of their tenure.

The ceremony was held at the Executive Council Chambers of Government House in Port Harcourt.

Swearing in the caretaker chairmen, Fubara said: “In furtherance of our determined steps to stabilise our polity, I swore-in Chairmen of Caretaker Committees to manage the affairs of our 23 Local Government Areas after the expiration of the tenure of the immediate past Chairmen.

” As nature abhors a vacuum, our action is to ensure that we don’t give vent to tenure elongation which is alien to our constitution. Upon swearing-in, I charged the caretaker chairmen to protect the interest of their people in the grassroots leadership and to promote peace and order in their domains.

“As a government that strongly adhers to accountability, I also ordered for the audit of the activities of the administration of the 23 Local Government Areas in the past three years in order to ascertain the proper utilization of funds within the period.”
