Governor Sheriff Oborevwori has expressed satisfaction with the performance of the present crop of Local Government Chairmen in the state whose tenure will expire on Friday, March 8, 2024.

He made the expression on Wednesday at the commissioning of projects executed by the Isoko South Local Government, with Hon Victor Asasa as Chairman.

The Governor, who was represented by his Chief of Staff, Hon Prince Johnson Erijo, noted that the narrative of non performance associated with Local Government Councils in the past had changed with the Councils now executing capital and other developmental projects aimed at improving the well-being of the people.

He said his administration was irrevocably committed to implementing its MORE agenda to the latter and was happy with the complementary roles of the Local Government Chairmen in actualizing the vision. 

Governor Oborevwori commended the Isoko South Council Chairman, Hon Victor Asada, for living up to the expectations of his people over the past three years, by making impressive marks in the areas of peace and security, healthcare delivery, education, agriculture, solar-powered electricity supply, road maintenance, market development, environmental sanitation, among others.

The Governor thanked the people of Isoko South for their continued support for his administration and the PDP, and for cooperating with the Local Government Council to attract the needed development to the area.

In his address on the occasion, the Council Chairman, Hon Victor Asasa, said on assumption of duty in March 2021, the Council was faced with the challenge of paucity of funds for development projects, which necessitated the option to cut cost to be able to change the narrative.

Asasa pointed out that with the saved cost the Council was able to execute some projects considered to be most beneficial to the people, which gave rise to the renovation of the Edherie Primary Healthcare Center, establishment of a sick bay at the Council:s secretariat and the installation of solar street lights across the LGA.

He thanked Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s for providing the MORE agenda template, which made it possible for Council Chairmen in the state to deliver people-oriented projects to the grassroots.

The projects commissioned by the Governor’s representative, Hon Johnson Erijo, were the Edherie Primary Healthcare Center, the Council’s sick bay and solar-powered street lights.
