Enugu State Government has directed the 17 local government chairmen and counsellors in the state to hand over administration to most senior officers in the councils following expiration of their tenure on March 4 2024.

The directive, the government said is in line with the extant laws guiding tenure of elected Chairmen and counsellors in the local government Councils.  

The Commissioner for Local Government, Rural Development and Chieftaincy Affairs, Deacon Okey Ogbodo in a statement on Monday, said that the tenure of the chairmen and counsellors lapsed by Monday March 4, 2024.

Ogbodo said that the former chairmen were directed to hand over to the Head of Personnel Management (HPMs) of the various councils, being the most senior officers. He said that the HPMs would hold forth pending when the state government would finally decide on the next line of action to take.

“The out-going chairmen were directed to hand over to the HPMs of their various councils. They will hold forth pending when the state government will decide what happens next,” the statement said.
