Okowa Swears In Daboner As Uvwie-Council Boss


LAGOS FEBRUARY 25TH (URHOBOTODAY)-There is every indication that the suspension Hon Henry Baro must have to stay and the leadership tussle that rocked Uvwie local government council of Delta State has been put to rest with the formal swearing-in of Chief (Mrs) Stella Daboner as Chairman by Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
“The Chairman is a product of the very long drawn issue between the Council and the House of Assembly,” Governor Okowa said today February 23 ,2016 , in Asaba . The swearing in was witnessed by the Speaker, Delta State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Monday Igbuya and other top government functionaries.
According to the Governor, “the House of Assembly having found the former Chairman culpable, had to remove him from office and by law, the Vice Chairman had to step in.”
He stated that no act of lawlessness would be condoned in the state, emphasizing that the Councils should pay emphasis on the issues of environmental sanitation and primary healthcare.
While stating that his administration spends N678 million monthly to support the payment of primary school teachers in the state, Governor Okowa called for patience among local government workers.
He said, “we need to know that the local government councils are challenged with the issue of payment of salaries, I call for patience as this is a national malaise; payment of primary school teachers’ salaries is by the local government and deducted from source, because, we have a large number of primary school teachers in the state, this has impacted negatively on the resources of the Councils.
The Governor congratulated Mrs Daboner on her successful emergence as Chairman and challenged her to ensure a safer and clean local government that would be attractive to investors.
Responding, the Chairman, said she will carry out her functions diligently and with the fear of God.
