Assembly Begins Performance Assessment Tour Of LGAs.

Assembly Begins Performance Assessment Tour Of LGAs.

Following the controversy trailing the tenure extension of Local Government Chairmen in Akwa-Ibom State, the State House of Assembly Committee on Local Governments has commenced a fact finding tour of all the 31 council areas across the state, to evaluate their performances in the last six months.

The legislature and Governor Umo Eno had initially traded different positions on the tenure extension of the transition committee chairmen in the state.

Eno had, in a letter to the Assembly, requested it to pass a resolution for tenure extension of the sitting Local Government Transition Committees in the 31 local Government areas whose tenure expires on June 7, 2024, for another six months.

Speaking with Newsmen, the House Committee Chairman on Information, Hon Jerry Otu, said the tour is in line with the standing order of the house to evaluate the performances of the local Governments before making a recommendation to the Governor for extension.

Otu, who represents Ikot Ekpene/Obot Akara State Constituency, explained, however, that the House did not throw away the Governor’s request as reported in a section of the media, but only insisted that it should use the period to assess and evaluate the performances of the transition chairmen.
