LG au­ton­omy nec­es­sary for Buhari’s suc­cess – NULGE

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Ibrahim Musa Giginyu, Kano

Na­tional Pres­i­dent of Nige­rian Union of Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Em­ploy­ees (NULGE) Com­rade Ibrahim Khaleel yesterday said the suc­cess of Buhari’s ad­min­is­tra­tion lies in the ac­tu­al­iza­tion of lo­cal gov­ern­ment au­ton­omy.

The NULGE pres­i­dent, at a press brief­ing in Kano, said lo­cal gov­ern­ment was the bane of ev­ery suc­ces­sive gov­ern­ment. He said the union was very op­ti­mistic that Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari would re­deem his pledge to grant free­dom to lo­cal gov­ern­ments.

He added that the call for fi­nan­cial and demo­cratic au­ton­omy of lo­cal gov­ern­ments in Nige­ria was nec­es­sary, ‘‘judg­ing from the chal­lenges presently fac­ing lo­cal gov­ern­ments in the na­tion due to state gov­ern­ment un­con­sti­tu­tional dic­ta­tor­ship over them, au­ton­omy is the only way out.”
