The Abia State House of Assembly has mandated the leadership of the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) to reopen the gate of Aba North Local Government Council headquarters to ensure normal businesses resume at the council.

However, the Speaker, Rt. Hon Chinedum Enyinnaya Orji, at the resumption of plenary sitting of the house, disclosed that the house has constituted an ad-hoc committee to resolve the subsisting issues impeding governance at the Abia North local area.
