#Benue #PDP Condemn Sack of Local Government Caretaker Committees

Benue State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has condemned the All Progressives Congress, APC-led government in the state for sacking Local Government Caretaker Committees, describing the action as a show of impunity and total disregard for due process.


Speaking with reporters in Makurdi, state
chairman of the PDP, Dr. Agbo Emmanuel explained that the decision by the Governor Samuel Ortom led administration to dissolve the councils was at variance with the principles of rule of law.


According to Dr. Agbo, “the appointment of local government caretaker committees in Benue state was backed up by necessary laws which allows them a tenure of six months.

“They were half way into the six months
tenure when they were kicked out by the administration simply because they were appointed by the immediate past administration.

“All we are saying is that this All
Progressives Congress, APC, government has become totalitarian and
by so doing jettisoned all known principles of rule of law and due
process.”
