MrFatai said that he is happy with the message and encourages his councillors to serve under the Leadership Code.

“The public will be expecting them to perform their roles accordingly and it is of great importance for them to maintain their integrity as leaders without any conflict of interest or any other misconduct,” Mr Luza added.
The chairman further states that the Leadership Code is to assist every leader including the Councillors to keep them on track with their duties.
The LCC has three important functions which are: investigating allegations of misconduct in office by Government Leaders, Manages and maintains a Register of Leaders Interest and Assists Leaders to comply with the Leadership Code and promotes good governance, accountability and transparency.
