Releated Post

Yobe State Governor, Mai Mala Buni Monday, charged the newly elected chairmen of the 17 local government councils of the state on the need to promote transparency and accountability in their handling of assets in their care.

Buni gave the charge during the inauguration of the newly elected chairmen in Damaturu.

He warned them to ensure that government properties are always reflected in handing and taking over notes, and also urged them to maintain a contract register to facilitate monitoring and evaluation, levels of work, and their corresponding expenditures.

Buni also charged them to improve the provision of basic facilities and services such as security, water supply, sanitation, healthcare delivery, and agriculture, as well as partner with the federal and state governments in implementing programmes initiated by them.

He claimed that the overwhelming victory of the APC is a clear indication that it remains the most popular and the darling party, while noting that the party will continue to wax stronger and win future elections at all levels with ease.

He commended the Yobe State Independent Electoral Commission for organizing a credible, free, and fair election which brought in the chairmen, stressing that every candidate and political party were given the opportunity to participate, and that no no voter was desenfranchised.

He said: “The just concluded local government council election has no doubt demonstrated the entrenched and nurtured democracy in the local councils and brought government closer to the people.”

The governor, while also commending all the political parties, the contestants, and their supporters for the spirit of sportsmanship demonstrated in the peaceful and orderly conduct of the elections, appealed to the entire people of the state to continue to support and cooperate with the government and the security agencies.

He also applauded the security operatives for maintaining law and order during the exercise
