Not deterred by the massive defection of members of his political party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress, (APC), Governor Gabriel Suswam has inaugurated caretaker committees for the 23 local government councils in the state.
Performing the ceremony at the Banquet Hall of the Government House, Makurdi, on Wednesday, Suswam told the chairmen to work towards capturing the areas lost bythe PDP during the presidential and National Assembly election.
“You must deliver your various local governments to the PDP if you want to remain in power after my tenure. I heard that some desperate politicians have procured arms to disrupt the Saturday elections. So it is now left to you to tackle any form of insecurity challenge in your domains by partnering with the stakeholders for a hitch-free election. But remember, you must deliver your local governments to the PDP by ensuring that the PDP governorship and House of Assembly candidates emerge victorious”,Suswam charged.
Responding, Konshisha Local Government Caretaker Chairman,Hon.Iorhen Shirsha, assured that they were aware of their critical assignment and they would work towards achieving successfor the party.
