The assembly also mandated its Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs to investigate the allegation against the officials and report to back within 7 days.

The Speaker explained that it was unlawful for the Council Chairmen to carry out recruitment exercise without the approval of the State Local Government Service Commission.

In another development, the assembly delayed approval of a proposed 7years N20bn bond to be accessed by the State Government.

The lawmakers insisted on consulting with their constituents on the matter before taking a decision because the assembly would not be stampeded into taking a decision that would affect the wellbeing of the people of the State in an adverse manner.
