Fubara directs LG Heads of administration to oversee councils



Gov. Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers, on Tuesday, directed the Heads of Local Government Administration (HLGAS) to immediately take charge of their councils.

He said this followed the expiration of the tenure of the 23 local government chairmen on June, 17.

Fubara gave the directive in a statewide broadcast at Government House in Port Harcourt.

He commended the dedicated services of the outgoing elected local government chairmen and councillors whose tenure expired after three years of service.

The governor, on behalf of the state, thanked them for their commitment in serving the state.

Fubara congratulated them on the completion of their tenure and wished them well in their future endeavours.

The governor said that he would continue to provide leadership and direction to the people, to ensure that the constitution of the federal republic was upheld, and law and order maintained.

“I hereby direct heads of local government administration to continue to provide leadership in their respective LGAs,” he said.

He directed the heads of LGAs to immediately take charge of the councils with renewed vigor and readiness to serve.

Fubara urged them to wait for other directives as the state navigated toward greater accomplishments.

He assured Rivers people that his administration would continue to provide infrastructure development, sound health care delivery, quality education and undiluted welfare service packages to the people.
