Governor Samuel Ortom on Thursday swore in Mr. Joseph Okpe as acting chairman of Ogbadibo Local Government Council with a charge for him to be prudent in the management of resources.

The development followed the suspension of the substantive chairman of the council, Mr. Simon James Akola, by the State Assembly on allegations of financial impropriety.

Governor Ortom charged the acting chairman to imbibe the virtues of his administration which include transparency, accountability, equity, justice and fairness in the discharge of his official duties.

He also charged him to be fair to all irrespective of political affiliation and to also run an inclusive and consultative administration.

The Governor advised Mr. Okpe to be prudent in managing the finances of the council and to work hard in order to boost its internally generated revenue.

He also tasked the acting chairman on effective supervision of the ongoing implementation of the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law in his council area.

While noting that his administration would always promote youth and women participation in governance, Governor Ortom charged the acting chairman to justify the confidence reposed in him by his people and make the youth proud through outstanding positive performance.

Mr. Okpe promised not to betray the confidence reposed in him by the youth in general and people of Ogbadibo in particular.
