7 LG chairmen in Enugu State submit work plans

A total of seven out of the 17 local government chairmen in Enugu State have submitted their work plans to the state government, one month after they assumed office.
The Commissioner for Local Government Matters, Mr Chijioke Edoga, made this known in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Enugu on Wednesday.
He said that the state government used the work plans to monitor activities of the councils every two months.
Edoga said that the monitoring was aimed at ensuring that the council chairmen complied with what was set out in the plans submitted.
The commissioner said that the chairmen were directed to set up committees to visit communities in their domains to ascertain their basic needs and report back to the chairmen.
“After that, the council chairmen are expected to submit the reports to the state commissioner for local government for documentation and appraisal when necessary.
“So with that work plan, it helps you to plan and it helps you to execute.
“If they develop their work plan, it helps them to plan ahead and then execute properly because if you don’t have work plan you get confused,’’ Edoga said.
He said that the chairmen had organised a retreat for 260 councillors in the state to educate them on legislative procedures. The commissioner said that a similar exercise would be organised for supervisory councillors on how to conduct the affairs of the council. (NAN)
