        Okpoma-Ward
        Yache-Ward
        Okuku-Ward
        Ijirage-Ward
        Ntrigom/Mfuma-Ward

    The Local Government Area was created on August 27, 1999 and is bounded in the North by Benue State, in the South by Ikom and Obubra Local Government Areas, in the East by Ogoja Local Government Area and in the West by Ebonyi State.

    It has a size of 3,458 sq. km. and has Okpama as the Council headquarters.

    Some of the cultural/traditional festivals are the new Yam festival and Age Grades system. The traditional market days are Ikor, Akpakpa, Egana, Ekwok, Lihir, Ebi and Igeke.

    ACHIEVEMENTS
    Under the leadership of Hon. Mathew Abru Ojugbo maximum successes have been recorded. This government at the third tier level was faced with myriad of problems in its first year of office. The situation was such that staff salaries remained unpaid for several months, a direct result of statutory deductions at source for the funding of primary schools.

    In the area of infrastructural development many project were initiated and executed. Hon. Ojugbo's administration ensured that these projects were evenly spread across the eleven wards in the local government area.

    Drugs procured for all health centres as well as the purchase and supply of beds and beddings to all health districts.

    In addition, council provided an enabling environment for the successful take off of the National Immunization Day.

  • Yala Local Government is blessed with abundant salt deposit which can sustain any small scale salt industry. There are many salt ponds in Okpoma which are of great history to the people and are mined locally. The LGA also offers a wide range of investment opportunities in agro-based industries as well as solid mineral industries.
