Soludo disclosed that the state owed about N14 billion in back wages for pensions and gratuities that his administration had begun to pay.

Christian Aburime, Soludo’s press secretary, reported that the inauguration took place soon after the State Executive Council Meeting at the Government House in Awka.

TonyCollins Nwabunwanne, the state’s commissioner for local government, serves as the committee’s head. Ifeatu Onejeme, the commissioner for state finances, and Dr. Arinze Nwankwo-Ikwueto serve as the vice chair and secretary, respectively.

The appointment came at a time when the state’s resources were scarce, and Soludo praised Committee members for accepting the position but warned that their work would not be simple.

“Resources are not there, you are being called upon to do this work at a time when there are challenges in the finances of the country, the state, and local government and you have been called upon to find the solution,” he said.

Soludo said his administration would set up a local government administration that would address the challenges in that layer of government.

He pointed out that the infrastructure in the various local government areas, including those burnt down by arsonists, needed to be repaired to enable council staff to go to offices and perform optimally.

“For us, we have the vision to have responsibility devolved to base and to have a local government that is empowered to deliver development to the grassroots.

“Consequently, the finances that are very limited will have to be run in a different way; we have a peculiar local government system where the staff and other obligations of the local government are pulled together,” he said.

Nwabunwanne, who spoke on behalf of the committee, described his team as competent and ready to deliver on their mandate and thanked the governor for finding them worthy.
