Shettima Orders LG Chairmen To Operate Satellite Secretariat At IDPs Camps


Borno State government, Kashim Shettima, has directed newly appointed caretaker chairmen to commence administrative activities in reconstructed secretariats and temporary secretariats in 24 out of the 27 local government areas across the State.
Shettima added that three remaining local government areas are to operate ‘satellite secretariats’ within IDP camps in Maiduguri.

The move, Shettima said, is to lay foundation for return of civil authority in local government areas of the State as a post insurgency response.
The Governor gave the directives on Friday shortly after the caretaker chairmen for the 27 local government areas were sworn in for a term of six months at a mini ceremony held at the multi purpose hall of the Government House in Maiduguri.
“Chairmen of the following local government areas should immediately work with His Excellency, the Deputy Governor, Commissioner of Local Government and Emirate Affairs, Commissioner for Reconstruction, Rehabilitation and Resettlement and our security establishments to start operating either from their reconstructed council secretariats or to set up satellite secretariats in any vacant public infrastructure or at any IDPs camp with the highest population of citizens at the headquarters of their respective local government areas.
“Secretariats, whether at permanent or satellite locations, must be fully functional with chairmen and council officials operating from there and readily available and accessible to the people they are appointed to serve.
“The 20 affected local government areas to operate from reconstructed or satellite secretariats at their headquarters include: Kaga, Jere, Damboa, Konduga, Monguno, Askira Uba, Chibok, Ngala, Kala-Balge, Mafa, Nganzai, Dikwa, Gubio, Magumeri, Biu, Shani, Bayo, Hawul, Kwaya Kusar and of course, Maiduguri Metropolitan Council,” Shettima said.
The Governor also listed four local government areas which are to operate two secretariats each.
