Buni swears in elected LG chairmen

Yobe State governor, Mai Mala Buni, has sworn in newly elected chairmen of the 17 local government councils.

Buni commended all the political parties, the contestants and their supporters for the spirit of sportsmanship demonstrated in the peaceful and orderly conduct of the elections, which recorded a massive turnout of voters, and whose results have been adjudged free, fair, and credible.

“This important and successful exercise is indeed a collective victory for the entire good people of the state, for which I have the honour to pleasantly rejoice with you all,” he added.

According to him, the overwhelming victory of the APC at the poll was a clear indication that the party remains the most popular and liked party.

“I am optimistic that with such commitments and good organisation, the APC will continue to wax stronger and win future elections at all levels with ease,” he stated.
