Fubara Nominates New Caretaker Chairmen for Rivers LGAs

Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has nominated caretaker chairmen for the state’s 23 local government areas, submitting the list to the Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Speaker Victor Jumbo.

The nominations come amidst a renewed political crisis in the state, triggered by the refusal of former council chairmen to vacate their offices following the expiration of their tenure. This move is seen as an attempt to stabilize the local government administration and ensure continuity in governance.

In a statement released on Tuesday night by the Clerk of the House, G.M. Gillis-West, the Assembly announced that the nominees have been invited for screening, scheduled for Wednesday at 8:00 am.
