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.
