“I had earlier promised the world that we would conduct local government elections, but that is no longer possible because of the Coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging everywhere. As soon as this pandemic is over, we will conduct elections in our local government areas.

“I want to urge the already sworn in caretaker chairmen to live up to their responsibilities. You are going there to serve the people and that is what you should do, nothing else,” he said.
