Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has forwarded the names of nominees for the Caretaker Committees of the 23 local government areas to the Rivers State House of Assembly, led by Speaker Victor Oko-Jumbo, for screening and confirmation.

In a surprising turn of events, the Governor, just 24 hours after his statewide broadcast on Tuesday, directing Heads of Local Government Administration (HLGAs) to take charge following the expiration of the three-year tenure of former council chairmen, submitted a list of Caretaker Committee members to the State House of Assembly for confirmation.

The list comprises a Chairman and seven members for each of the 23 Local Government Areas.

Consequently, the Assembly, led by Victor Oko-Jumbo, has invited nominees for screening and confirmation as Chairmen and members of Caretaker Committees in the state’s 23 Local Government Areas.

According to the Clerk of the House, Dr G. M. Gillis-West the screening exercise is in accordance with Section 9(5) of the Rivers State Local Government Law, No. 5 of 2018.

The nominees are expected to undergo scrutiny by the Assembly before being confirmed for their respective roles.

The exercise, scheduled for Wednesday, June 19, 2024, at 8:00 a.m., will be held at the Hallowed Chamber, Rivers State House of Assembly, Auditorium, Admin. Block, Rivers State Government House, Port Harcourt.
