The inauguration which held in the Executive Chamber of the Governor’s office, Calabar was conduct in accordance to laid down COVID-19 protocol

In his speech Sir Ayade urged the newly elected Council Chairmen to avoid unnecessary trips outside their councils, harping on the need for them to stay back home and work for their people.

He disclosed that his administration has left behind for the newly elected chairmen, N11.386 billion as take off fund, so they have no reason not to perform.

He further implored the Chairmen not to engage in grandiose projects but concentrate on simple projects that directly impact on the lives of the people.

In further advice he told the chairmen to work harmoniously with their councillors so as to effectively serve the people.

He urged them to reside in their respective Local Government Areas so as to be abreast of the needs of their people.
