The acting Chairman of the group, Chinwe Obinna, said their action is based on a recent ruling by the Federal High Court in Owerri, reinstating them into office, a judgment which the state government did not appeal.

They vowed to go back to their offices to complete their tenure, of three years knowing full well that the Federal Government does not recognize interim management at the local government level.

The council chairmen also promised to support Governor Hope Uzodimma to achieve his government’s policy thrust in the state.
