The Chairman of Abi Local Government Council Mrs Edith Amadi has inaugurated the executive arm of the council with a charge on members to live above board.
Performing the inauguration at the Council Hall, council Headquarters Itigidi on Friday (today), the Chairman called on the newly sworn in executives to take their responsibilities seriously while not succumbing to pressure to do the wrong thing as the success or failure of the administration would depend on their actions and conduct in office.
Mrs Amadi stressed that their appointment is ‘a call to serve rather than call to selves’, urging them to vigorously pursue the realisation of the mandate of the administration which is geared towards transforming not only the Local Government Area but also the lives of the people.
She said:” I urge you therefore to understand that the commitment of my administration is to exemplify hard work, transparency, prudence, and accountability. These will not be compromised in any form.
The Council Boss reminded the Executive members that their appointments were based on merit with confidence that they would deliver good services to the people in their respective capacities.
Hon Amadi charged the appointees to live up to expectation so as not to betray the trust and confidence reposed in them while ensuring strict adherence to the vision of the state as captured in the state government’s seven point agenda.
Responding on behalf of the Executive members, the Secretary of Council Mr BasseyEkponta thanked the chairman for finding them worthy to serve in her administration.
He pledged his colleagues resolve to fully cooperate with the council chairman to enable her succeed while also assuring that they would not let both the chairman and the people of Abi down.
Present at the ceremony were the paramount ruler of Abi, Eval Lawrence Idaka Egbe and his council of chiefs, the commissioner for Local Government Affairs represented by the Director Inspectorate Mr James Uket amongst others who admonished the appointees on the need to work as a team towards uplifting the council area and its dwellers.
