Eleven sole administrators have been appointed by the Nasarawa State government out of the 13 local government areas of the state, by the state governor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura.
A statement to this effect was signed and issued to newsmen in Lafia on Saturday, by the commissioner for local government and chieftaincy affairs in the state, Aliyu Tijani Ahamed.
The statement stated that, the state government invoked what it termed the ‘doctrine of necessity’ to avoid vacuum at the LGAs pending the conduct of the council elections in the state. It further explained that the tenure of office of chairman of Keana local government council would be expiring in November, 2016.
According to the statement, the appointment followed the expiration of the tenure of office of the 11 local government chairmen on March 24, 2016. “By virtue of the expiration of their tenure on March 24, 2016, the eleven local government chairmen stand dissolved, hence the need to appoint sole administrators, in order not to have a vacuum at the local government area.”
