Buni Swears In 17 New LG Chairmen

Yobe State Governor Mai Mala Buni has sworn in the newly elected chairmen of the state’s 17 local government areas and charged them to deliver more development projects to the people.

After yesterday’s swearing-in ceremony in Damaturu, the state capital, Buni urged the chairmen to use their resources prudently to ensure that the government’s projects benefit the people.

According to him, the council election has undoubtedly demonstrated his administration’s commitment to entrench and nurture democracy at the grassroots.

The governor said the political parties and their candidates offered voters choices to elect chairmen and councillors, adding that the people have spoken through their votes.

He said the event was to stamp the people’s authority in the election of the new chairmen and councillors for the 17 councils.

He commended all the political parties, the contestants, and their supporters for the spirit of sportsmanship demonstrated in the peaceful and orderly conduct of the elections, which recorded a massive turnout of voters and whose results have been adjudged free, fair, and credible.
“I wish to remind the chairmen of the local government areas that you are required to key into our administration’s development agenda, providing empowerment opportunities to youths, women and vulnerable persons, and improving on internally generated revenue,” he said.

Buni called on the chairmen to promote transparency and accountability in handling public finances, assets, and equipment.
