Speaker Tasks New Local Government Chairmen On Grassroot Development

The speaker of the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly (AKHA) has lauded Gov Udom |Emmanuel for inaugurating the new chairmen and vice chairmen to run the affairs of the 31 local government councils in the state as the effort will strengthen grassroots development. Mr Aniefiok Bassey who said this shortly after the inauguration ceremony at the State Banquet Hall in Uyo recently, commended the quality of men and women elected to run the councils, describing them as people of proven integrity who will bring grassroot development to the people. He urged them not to betray the confidence reposed on them by the governor and the people of Akwa Ibom State, maintaining that Akwa Ibom State was growing very fast and very soon the concept of rural area would not be applicable to any part of the state as the government was working hard to meet the yearnings of the people at the grassroots by providing them with basic amenities to include good access roads, healthcare and schools among others. The speaker added that the essence was to make rural areas lively and economically viable, calling on the newlyinaugurated chairmen and vice chairmen to see the governor's effort as a call to service of the people, as well as carrying out their responsibilities efficiently. Bassey assured that the House of Assembly will continue to collaborate with other arms of government in making legislations that will enhance democratic dividends and good governance at the local government level. The lawmaker advised the new council heads to be alive to their responsibilities and build upon the governor's call for political inclusiveness by making governance at the local government level vibrant and responsive.
