The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi yesterday swore in the newly-elected 13 council chairmen and the 171 councilors amid tight security.

The Federal High Court in a judgment delivered by Justice Fatun Riman on 25th August 2022, had voided the said election that produced the 13 local government chairmen that was conducted by the Ebonyi State Independent Electoral Commission, EBSIEC.

The newly elected council chairmen had earlier approached the Ebonyi State High Court sitting in Abakaliki, and obtained an ex-parte order that enabled the governor to swear them in.

It was gathered that security operatives especially the police, DSS among others cordoned the Pa Ngele Oruta Township Stadium, wherein the inauguration took place.

Umahi also reiterated that the tenure for chairmen and councilors remains two years as enshrined in the amended Ebonyi Local Government Law 005.
