The Chairman of Emohua Local Government in Rivers State, Chidi Lloyd has alleged that his tenure was supposed to end this month but the Rivers State Assembly led by Martins Amaewhule extended it due to the executive branch’s failure to conduct the legally mandated Local Government elections.

He underscored the constitutional requirement specified in Section 7, which mandates that local government administration must be carried out by democratically elected officials. He clarified that their extended stay in office was not an act of defiance but a legal necessity. .

He said in an interview with TVC from 13:00, ”My tenure should have expired this month but the Rivers Assembly extended our tenure because of the inability of the executive to conduct elections as prescribed by the law. The Rivers state House of Assembly being led by Amaewhule had to invoke the doctrine of necessity and extend our tenure by one month.

Because section 7 of the constitution says that Local Government administration must be done by democratically elected officials. We are not threatening not to leave office. It is the law that keeps us in office and it is the law that will take us out of office. So when the law speaks, everybody must leave.”….Sée Móre
