Special Adviser to the Governor on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon.Titus Zam, has charged sole administrators for the 23 local government councils in the state to work in tandem with the philosophy of the Ortom Administration.
Hon.Zam gave the Charge ( today, Tuesday, 1st November 2016) during the monthly Joint Account and Allocation Committee meeting with sole administrators and other stakeholders at the conference hall of the Bureau in Makurdi.
He stated that their creation was made possible through an amendment to the Local Government Law by the State House of Assembly and urged them to give their full loyalty to Governor Samuel Ortom, adding that they were duty bound to abide and comply with policy directions of the state government towards supporting efforts of the governor to reposition the state.
The Special Adviser maintained that due Governor Ortom's transparency in governance, the JAAC meeting has been reconstituted to comprise NULGE, NLC, NUT, officials and treasurers of the 23 local governments in the disbursement of funds accrued to the third tier from the federal allocation as opposed to the old order where Chairmen held meetings separate from treasurers in the name of technicality.
Responding on behalf of his colleagues, ALGON Chairman and sole Administrator, Guma Local Government Council, Mr Anthony Shawon, appreciated Governor Ortom for appointing them to serve in that capacity.
Shawon also pledged to give maximum loyalty to the Ortom Administration and promised to always cooperate with the management of the Bureau for smooth operations at the third tier.
