Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, has sworn-in the new Transitional Caretaker Chairmen and Councillors to take over from those who had been running the 21 local government areas in the state since the expiration of the tenure of the elected council officials in August last year.

The swearing-in took place on Wednesday at the Governor’s Lodge in Awka, the state capital.

Transitional Caretaker Chairmen sworn include former Deputy Speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Mr. Chukwudi Orizu, and two erstwhile members of the house, Mr. Collins Nwabunwanne and Mr. Uchenna Umerie. Also sworn-in were councillors to represent various wards in the local government areas.

The tenure of the transition Chairmen as approved by the State House of Assembly is expected to last for three months, after which their tenure would either be renewed or fresh appointments made.

News Express recalls that Governor Obiano had on Thursday, March 23, submitted the list of nominees to the state House of Assembly for screening and confirmation as Chairmen and councillors for the 21 local government areas in the state.

The lawmakers at yesterday’s plenary presided over by the Speaker, Mrs. Rita Maduagwu, confirmed all the nominees.

Addressing the local government Transitional Caretaker Chairmen, the Speaker reminded them that they were the closest government to the grassroots and urged them to work tirelessly to better the lives of their rural populace.

Speaking on behalf of his colleagues, the new Transition Chairman for Nnewi North Local Government Area, Mr. Chukwudi Orizu, said that he was happy for the opportunity given them to serve the people of their local government saying that they will not betray the trust reposed in   them by the Governor and the state lawmakers.

Lending his voice, Mr. Raymond Onyegu of Orumba South local council said that they would work to ensure that the people at the grassroots get dividends of democracy.

He promised to use his new position to bring enduring peace and development in the 15 communities in the council area.
