Know your Otukpo LGA chairpersons

Despite its position and huge resources spent in LGA annually, the Otukpo secretariat remains derelict.
Of the nine local government areas in Benue State's geopolitical Zone C, Otukpo occupies a pride of place as  political headquarters of the zone. But since the creation of Benue from Benue-Plateau State in 1976, documentation of its leadership and administration has been poor.

However, recently, on Otukpo LGA website, donated by a Youth Corper, Umunna Odinakachi N. (Batch Number 13C/0567), the following information on past Otukpo LG Chairmen has been released. Interestingly, Otukpo has had an average of
less than one chairperson per year in its life time to date.
