Adamawa Assembly reduces tenure of LG chairmen
The Adamawa State House of Assembly, Tuesday, passed a law reducing the tenure of local government councils’ chairmen from two-and-half years to two.
The Chairman, House Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Muhammadu Hayatu, presented the report on the amendment of the Adamawa State Local Government System, Establishment and Administration Law No. 4 of 2000, which was adopted by the House.
Hayatu argued that chairmen of local councils in Adamawa State could, like their counterparts in other states, perform within a period of two years.
The speaker, Kabiru Mijinyawa, who presided over the plenary, directed the clerk of the House to send a clean copy of the bill to the state governor for his assent.
