"You are not expected to embark on construction work within these three months, improve
security in your localities” he added.
The governor added that the caretaker committee chairmen
such as Asari Toru and Akuku Toru were not re-appointed because of the
heightened insecurity in their local government areas.
He noted that his administration would not tolerate any
form of corruption in the management of the local government resources.
"Any caretaker committee chairman involved
in corrupt practices will be sanctioned."
