Governor David Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State has charged the newly sworn-in Development Centre Coordinators to work in synergy with other stakeholders to eliminate cultism and farmers/herdsmen clashes in their localities.
A statement by the Special Assistant (SA) on Social Media, Emmanuel Igwe, quoted Governor Umahi as saying that the Coordinators must also assist the people in agriculture and industrial development in the state.
The statement further added that they must show enough commitment in supervision of schools, health institutions and sanitation of the premises of their Development Centres.
The Governor said he would measure their performances based on the aforementioned templates and warned there would not be any room for excuses.
“Governor Umahi wants all the Coordinators to live within their various Development Centres and any of them who wants to visit the state capital city on private matters should always take permission from his Senior Special Assistant (SSA) on Local Government Areas”, the statement read.
The Governor also said his SSA on LGA is duty bound to strictly supervise the Coordinators while the Commissioner for LGAs and the Council Chairmen are expected to key into the templates on secondary level.
“What I expect from all coordinators: working with SAs to eliminate cultism, working with all stakeholders on farmers/natives/Herdsmen clashes, helping our people on agriculture and industries, supervising of all schools, health institutions , Govt projects, looking after party people, making sure that our schools , health institutions and our DCs are kept clean.
“I will measure you on these templates and there can be no excuse. Take permission from SSA LGA when you want to visit state capital on a private note.
“SSA LGA to supervise you while I supervise him. I expect the Commissioner for LGA and Chairmen to key into these templates on secondary level”, the statement further hinted.
Recall that Governor Umahi recently appointed and sworn-in the first batch of 13 Development Coordinators out of 64 Development Centres in the state.
