A pres­i­den­tial com­mit­tee for the re­view of the Scheme of Ser­vice for Lo­cal Govern­ment Em­ploy­ees was in­au­gu­rated in on Mon­day by the min­is­ter of Spe­cial Du­ties and In­ter gov­ern­men­tal Af­fairs Kabiru Tan­imu Tu­raki.

The min­is­ter said the in­au­gu­ra­tion mark the start of the re­view of three vi­tal documents to lo­cal govern­ment ad­min­is­tra­tion in Nigeria which h he said was long over­due.

“The schemes of ser­vice for lo­cal govern­ment em­ploy­ees have been over­due for a re­view be­ing that the cur­rent edi­tion was pro­duced in the year 2006. I am con­fi­dent that, such re­view would sig­nif­i­cantly con­trib­ute to re­duc­ing the chal­lenges in the sec­tor and en­hance the re­al­iza­tion of pres­i­dent’s trans­for­ma­tion agenda,” Tu­raki said.

He said ef­forts are be­ing made to min­i­mize the sys­temic chal­lenges in lo­cal gov­er­nance in Nigeria.

“This re­view there­fore, is borne out of the ex­ist­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the min­istry and the United Na­tions De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme (UNDP) un­der the “Strength­en­ing Nigeria’s Lo­cal Gov­er­nance and Lo­cal De­vel­op­ment Pro­gramme.”
