|Oshiomhole Planned Illegal Extension Of LG Chairmen’s Tenure – PDP by Michaeluzomam(m): 5:35am On Apr 20, 2016|
The Peoples Democratic Party in Edo state has stated that Governor Adams Oshiomhole illegally extended the tenure of local government chairmen in the state.
In a statement issued by Chris Osa Nehikhare,
PDP publicity secretary in the state the extension constitute an
illegal caretaker committee.
“You will recall that on March 24 2016, Edo PDP
issued its first in a series of statements calling on Governor Adams Oshiomhole not
to illegally extend the tenure of the council chairmen in the state.
“Yesterday, the Edo State House of Assembly has
passed a resolution and
directed the council chairmen to prepare their handover notes and that they should handover on the 21st of April, 2016 to the HOS in the councils. This has become imperative as the members of EDHA and the peace loving people of Edo State saw no sign of the state government led by Governor Adams
for elections that would
lead to democratically
elected council chairmen
and councillors in the
PDP then lauded the Assembly for their stance. “Edo PDP acknowledges the Edo
State House of Assembly for acting in
the interest of democracy and the
people of Edo State and
having the courage to
pass a just and sound
resolution regarding the local government councils.
“With the order for the
council chairmen to
handover to the council
HOS, it is clear that
EDHA wants to be on
the right side of the law as the issues of illegally extending the tenure of council chairmen and handing over to an illegal transition or caretaker
committee are laid to
rest. We use this opportunity to advice the governor to shred the list of caretaker committee members
which he had unilaterally prepared.
“As a party, we have consistently warned
against tenure elongation and imposition of caretaker
committees for the local government councils. We believe that the local government councils should be run by democratically elected officials for the period for which they were elected.”
