We Will Not Spare Bailout Protesters – Hon. Titus Zam Warns

Following protests over bailout funds in several Local Government Areas in Benue State such as Katsina-Ala, Kwande and Obi, the Special Adviser to the state Governor on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Hon. Titus Zam has warned that anybody found to be culpable in the alleged protests would not be spared.

The Adviser who gave the warning while addressing the monthly joint account meeting of local Government Chairmen and treasurers at the Bureau yesterday, also condemned the chasing away of members of the committee on complaints verification and implementation who visited some local Government councils recently.
He also called upon local government caretaker chairman to live up to their responsibilities or have themselves to blame. He frowned at situations where council chairmen arbitrarily refer cases to his office when such issues could be handled by them, saying it was becoming increasingly embarrassing and showed signs of incompetence and indecision.
Hon. Zam urged the chairmen to always explain government policies and programs to the people at their respective council areas so as to reduce tension and anxiety among the citizens.
Responding on behalf of his colleagues, state ALGON Chairman and Chairman, Guma Local Government Council, Hon. Samuel Agah, assured the Special Adviser that they would work in unity with the Bureau and do everything to ensure the success of the Ortom Admnistration.
Hon. Agah also pledged that they would work in line with policy guidelines of the present administration and support the success of E- Payment towards the payment of staff salaries in the local government councils.
