The Governor of Yobe State, Mai Mala-Buni, has sworn-in the newly-elected chairmen of the 17 local government councils of the state, charging them to work towards improving the Internally Generated Revenue, IGR, in their areas.

Recall that on Saturday, February 27, local government elections were held across the state, including areas affected by the Boko Haram insurgency.

Speaking after the swearing-in ceremony on Wednesday in Damaturu, the state capital, the governor also urged the chairmen to make prudent use of resources at their disposal to ensure that government’s plans and projects are beneficial to the people.

According to him, the local council chairmen should generate enough resources to provide services in the areas of healthcare, agriculture, education and provision of water.

Governor Buni also assured the chairmen that the state government would support them in any effort to improve the living condition of the people that elected them.

“I urge you to ensure value for money, and place public interest above personal interest in whatever official activities and make government work for the people,” the governor added.
