Next Week: Will Fi­nan­cial Au­ton­omy Boost LGs?

THISDAY - - BUSINESS WORLD DEVELOPMENT / ISSUES IN BOX -

The Pres­i­dent (PMB) re­cently signed into law a bill grant­ing fi­nan­cial au­ton­omy to State Ju­di­cia­ries and State Houses of As­sem­bly, a move which was widely hailed. How­ever, some an­a­lysts also want fi­nan­cial au­ton­omy granted to Lo­cal Gov­ern­ments, to bring devel­op­ment to the peo­ple at the grass­roots level. To you, should the lo­cal coun­cils be granted fi­nan­cial au­ton­omy to en­sure good gov­er­nance? Please make your response direct, short and sim­ple, and state your full name, ti­tle, or­gan­i­sa­tion, and lo­ca­tion. Re­sponses should be sent be­tween to­day (June 14 & Mon­day, June 18) to abim­bo­layi@ya­hoo.com, great­bimbo@gmail.com, AND abim­bola.akosile@this­daylive.com. Re­spon­dents can also send a short text mes­sage to 08023117639 and/or 08188361766 and/or 08114495306. Col­lated re­sponses will be pub­lished on Thurs­day, June 21
