**Council chairmen are rogues, thieves, armed robbers, deceitful set of human being
Local government performance has been likened to that of thieves, lackadaisical leadership and betrayal of hope for the common man.
The Kogi State Governor, Captain Idris Ichalla Wada, who was not happy with the council bosses’ action to good governance dropped the hint during the stake holders meeting with members of the People Democratic Party (PDP) at the Lugard House yesterday in Lokoja.
