Governor Siminalayi Fubara has sworn in Caretaker Committee Chairmen for the 23 Local Government Councils of Rivers State.

The governor swore in the chairmen at the Council Chambers of Government House, Port Harcourt, on Wednesday morning.

They were earlier screened by the faction of Rivers House of Assembly loyal to the governor.

The tenure of the former chairmen, who are loyal to the Minister of Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Nyesom Wike, elapsed on Monday.

However, there has been crisis in the state as the chairmen attempted to continue in office on the grounds that the Pro-Wike faction of Rivers House of Assembly extended their tenure by six months over the failure of Fubara to conduct elections.

But the governor directed them to hand over power to Heads of Administration, whom he asked to await further directives.

Fubara subsequently transmitted a list of caretaker chairmen to the Assembly, which in turn cleared them.

Below is the full list of the caretaker chairmen:
