Governor Fubara Swears in Rivers Caretaker Committee Chairmen

Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State, has sworn in new caretaker chairmen for the 23 local government areas of the state.

The governor inaugurated the new caretaker chairmen hours after the House of Assembly, led by factional Speaker, Victor Jumbo, screened and approved the nominees sent on Tuesday.

Governor Fubara had forwarded the list to the state House of Assembly and the nominees were invited for screening as early as 8 am on Wednesday, according to a statement issued by the Clerk of the House, G.M. Gillis-West.

The nomination came amid a renewed political crisis in the state, as former council chairmen have refused to vacate their offices after their tenure expired.

The swearing-in is currently ongoing at the Government House in Port Harcourt, the state capital, amid tight security.
