Local Government Service Commission



The Local Government Service Commission has operated since inception of the State from a hired building. However, the Commission is pleased to disclose that the State Government has promised to relocate her office to a property owned by the government if there is no space in the newly built secretariat.


The Local Government Service Commission also has no Official Staff Quarters either for Commissioners or staff. It is instructive to state that all staff of the Local Government Service Commission are deployed from various Councils and are on deployment to Asaba, the State Capital and the challenges of securing accommodation has had its toll on the staff of the Commission.

Arising from the above, we solicit that senior officials of the Commission be considered in the allocation of staff quarters.


An attempt has been made to highlight the activities of the Commission as well as some of the challenges we had to contend with in the past year. Nevertheless, it is necessary to state that the achievements contained in this report would not have been possible without the support of His Excellency and the conducive socio-political climate he has created in the State.

We therefore faithfully commend His Excellency, Senator Dr. Ifeanyi A. Okowa for the support he has always extended to the Commission since its inception.

The Commission is also grateful to all the Local Governments in the State for the very cordial relationship that had existed between the Commission and the Councils which has

translated into greater efficiency in the entire Local Government system. It is hoped that this level of cooperation would be sustained.
