FUBARA orders audit of 23 LGA accounts for past 3 years

Tuesday, June 18, 2024
 -Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara has ordered the auditor general of the state to begin the audit of the accounts of the 23 Local Government Areas for the past three years.

While swearing in the Caretaker Committee Chairmen of the Local Government Areas on Wednesday, June 19, the governor said the move is intended to serve as a check for the incoming officials.

He urged the caretaker chairmen to protect the interests of their people and demonstrate that the government made the right choice in appointing them.

Fubara explained that the fight against tenure extension is not just about Rivers state, but Nigeria, as allowing it in one state could lead to it being replicated nationwide.

The Rivers governor added that the process for local government area elections would commence soon.
