Lalong announced the dissolution in a statement by his Director of Press and Public Affairs, Mr Emmanuel Nanle, noting that it was with immediate effect.

The governor directed the caretaker committee chairmen to handover to directors of personnel management in their respective councils.

He said “the chairmen and management committee members are to immediately hand over the affairs of local governments to directors of personnel management pending further actions in line with the provision of law.”

The governor constituted the management committees in line with his powers under the edict providing for the establishment and administration of Local Government Councils 2005 (as Amended), subject to ratification of the House of Assembly.

The tenure of the management committees expired on June 28, 2017.

The governor appreciated members of the dissolved council management committees for their selfless service in the two years of their stewardship.

He wished them well in their endeavours and hoped they would be available in future for service when called upon.
