LOCAL COUNCIL CHAIRMEN: THERE PLACE OF RECIDENCE, THEIR OFFICE.

In the history of what everyone all over the world knows as obtainable with the work we do, one event alway stands out as very vital and strategic, and that is the event of where the officer doing a particular job lives in relation to the place his office is. Thus ,your office can not be in Kano, and you are living in Beirut.
Gov. Udom Emmanuel lives where he works
        Even in big conglomerates, establishments and government circle, just as the proverbial "work shop" is associated with the interpretation as "where you work is where you chop, same is popular in the knowledge of everyone, that where one work can equally be associated with where one lives.
  But same established order of "one should lives where he works" cannot be said of Council Chairmen/Chair persons. These are the only set of people that tent to disrupt this eternal mathematical order of work and place of abode of the officer, when they are not oil workers that have to be ferried across States to go and keep with their assignments in their places of work. Even oil companies now are beginning to invest in estates and leasing so as to keep their workers where their office is.
          In Yaba, Lagos, I am aware when a certain chairman lives in Lekki, while he comes to pick his bread in Yaba. Kogi State's Council Chairmen lives in Abuja, in AKWA Ibom state, all their council chairmen lives in Uyo, and only go to their respective council offices to share whatever allocations the state or federation sent to them. What a malady, what an animal farm. Little wonder government at the council level, which was the objective of local goverment council when it was created is almost non- existence.
    The governor of Akwa Ibom state, Deacon Udom Emmanuel, an accomplished banker, was living in Lagos, where his place of work was. When he was appointed SSG, in keeping with the sane requirement of your work place and where you live, he relocated to Uyo, where his new office is, same with Senators, Presidents, States and Federal House members, Commissioners and Ministers, everyone goes and live where his or her office is. But council chair, defile this law, and I wonder why?

GO BACK AND LIVE WITH YOUR PEOPLE, YOU ARE THERE BECAUSE OF THEM, NOT THE OTHER WAY ROUND!
