The Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike, on Sunday, May 12, recalled all the 12 local government chairmen councils earlier suspended by his administration.
The governor in a statement by his special assistant on electronic media, Simon Nwakaudu said the recall of the local government chairmen is with immediate effect.
The Nation reports that Nwakaudu also said the governor charged all the council chairmen to diligently serve their people and shun all forms of lackadaisical behaviour in governance.
He also urged them to tackle the issues of security challenges in their respective local government areas while warning that any chairman who continues to act in breach of extant laws would be shown the way out.
The Council Chairmen recalled include: Okrika, Emohua, Abua/Odual, Degema, Khana, Gokana, Ahoada East, Ikwerre, Eleme, Andoni, Omuma and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that Governor Wike said he is tired of being a governor after the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) presented him his certificate of return as the re-elected governor of Rivers state.
The Rivers state governor said that he would not contest for a third term even if the constitution permitted him.
