Other principal officers were Kenneth John, Deputy Leader; Kalu Okpi Udo, Ma­jority Leader; and Okereke Izuogu, Chief Whip.

The leader pledged the willingness of the counsel­lors to work in harmony with the Chairman for rapid development of communi­ties in the council.
He thanked the Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu for his po­litical courage to organise a successful council poll in the state after over eight years the last elected council chairmen in the state vacated office, saying that the devel­opment would fast - track development in the rural communities.
