Local Government Areas in Benue State are now to be run by Sole Administrators.
The new law came into effect today as the Governor of the State Samuel Ortom signed the amended Local Government Elections Bill passed by the State House of Assembly.
The Bill give the governor the sole rights to appoint and sack sole administrators who will manage the affairs of the local government areas in the state.
While signing the Bill into law, Gov. Ortom said the new law was a major milestone of his government in overcoming the challenge of funding Local Government elections.
