FROM IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu -The non-challant attitude of local government workers across Nigeria, on Wednesday landed two Council chairmen into trouble in Enugu, as the State Governor, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, met deserted council secretariats at Awgu and Aninri LGAs, when he paid an unscheduled inspection visit to the Areas.
African Examiner, gathered that the governor, who was highly disappointed with the development, has vowed to deal with the two council chiefs, so as to serve as deterrent to others.
The two Chairmen are, Mr. Mathanus Nnanna Nze of Awgu LGA, and that of Aninri Council Mr. Nwabueze Nwobodo,
A source told our correspondent that the chairmen are presently in serious moves to save themselves from the Governor’s hammer.
Ugwuanyi had during the visit, sent serious warning signals to government officials, local government council chairmen and their staff on the need to be punctual at duty posts as well as to discharge their duties creditably.
The Governor, who was angry over what he met on ground, was accompanied by his Deputy, Hon. Mrs. Cecilia Ezeilo, the State Chairman of PDP, Chief Ikeje Asogwa, and ex-chief of Staff to the immediate past governor, Mr. Victor Atuonwu.
At Awgu council Area, the governor and his entourage arrived the headquarters at about nine O’clock in the morning only to discover that principal officers of the council including the chairman, Mr. Mathanus Nnanna Nze were not in the office to receive him.
Most of the offices of the council were under lock and key with very few staff mostly security men and cleaners present.
The story was the same at Aninri local government council headquarters, Ndiabo, where the governor and his team arrived at about 9.50 a.m.
Apart from the Chairman’s office where the governor met a security man on duty and two supporting staff Nneka Ndubisi and Judith Nwafor and some youth corpers, the entire premises looked like a ghost village.
On enquiry, the few staff in the council area could not give satisfactory explanation on the where about of the Chairman, Mr. Nwabueze Nwobodo and his principal officers.
At Saint Vincent Secondary School Agbogwugwu, the story was different as the Principal of the School, Mr. Silas Okafor and his staffs were there to receive the Governor and his entourage.
The school was in full session and both teachers and the students were in their classes doing their job.
