… Charges her to be weary of busybody politicians
Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike Wednesday swore in elstwhile Vice Chairman, Mrs. Alaso Johnbull Obi as the substantive Chairman of Asari-Toru Local Government Area.
The ceremony held at Government House, Port Harcourt.
Governor Wike charged her to use her new position to make a difference as the people of the area are yet to feel the impact of the Council.
“Go and put your local government together. Do not allow busy body politicians to distract you. Use this opportunity you have to make a difference.
“We never thought that Chief Odiari Princewill will die but as God will have it, he is dead and we have to abide by the constitution.
“That is why you, as the deputy, has to step in as the substantive chairman of Asari-Toru local Government Area today.
“In choosing your Deputy, you must consult widely with all the stakeholders of the Party. As election is coming up next year, you have an opportunity to sell yourself,” he added.
Until her swearing in, Mrs. Alaso Johnbul Obi was the Vice Chairman of the Council but the death of the elected chairman, Chief Odiari Princewill on the 27th May, 2020 created a vacuum that needed to be filled.
