Governor Mbah Directs 17 Council Chairmen To Hand Over To New Caretaker

The heads of personnel management will now take over administration from the local government chairmen in the 17 councils, as directed by the Enugu State Government yesterday.

It was learned that the council chairs’ terms concluded yesterday.

Deacon Okey Ogbodo, the Commissioner for Local Government, Rural Development, and Chieftaincy Affairs, issued the direction for transfer.

He said the order was compliant with the current legislation governing the terms of office for elected chairman and council members.

Ogbodo said: “The tenure of the chairmen and councillors of the 17 local governments in Enugu State formally came to an end on March 4.

“Consequently, the council chairmen are expected to hand over to the heads of personnel management (HPM) in the local governments, with effect from March 4.

“This is in line with the extant laws guiding the tenure-ship of elected chairmen and councillors in our local governments.”
