Enugu LG Election: Mbah To Take Best Decision–Commissioner




The Enugu State Commissioner for Information and Communication, Mr Aka Eze-Aka, has said that Gov. Peter Mbah will take the best decision for the state as regards to the forthcoming local government election.

Aka said this in a press statement entitled “Enugu State LG Elections, right decisions to be taken at the right time” made available to the press on Thursday in Enugu.

He said the clarification had become necessary following some publications purporting that the government had no plans to institute a caretaker in the 17 local government areas.


“While no decision has been taken to either conduct the said election or take the option of caretaker arrangement, it needs to be stated that as a democrat, His Excellency, Dr Peter Mbah, the Governor of the state, would always be ready to take the best decision for the state.

“This is in conjunction with relevant authorities for the purpose including ENSIEC whose responsibility it is to conduct LG elections, ” he said.

The commissioner said it was worrisome that a few reporters in the state resorted to grandstanding in matters that need not be broached especially as it may result in unnecessary heating up of the polity.

Aka said that the viral report that_”the State Government says it has no plan to institute caretaker committees in the 17 local government councils of the state” was a misrepresentation of fact of a telephone conversation he had with a journalist on Tuesday.
“It is, therefore, of importance that reports of this nature must be clearly stated and records kept straight as it could be a source of distress to some interested individuals or groups, ” he said.

The Commissioner added that in the telephone conversation, he advised those who were interested in the local government elections to hold their peace.

“And not be too anxious about the election as the right thing must be done at the right time.

“Again, let us be patient and await decisions on the matter, ” he said.
