Govs opposing LG autonomy Nigerians’ enemies – NULGE
The Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has described governors opposing full-fledged autonomy for the operations of the 774 local governments in the county as enemies of the masses.
NULGE said Nigeria’s hydra-headed problems of train attacks, killings, unemployment, hunger, kidnappings, insurgency and drug abuse being perpetrated by youth would be tackled with a functional and responsive local government system.
The NULGE President, Ekiti chapter, Comrade Babatunde Olatunde spoke in Ado Ekiti, on Monday, at a media parley to galvanise support for the passage of the Local Government Autonomy Bill pending before State Assemblies.
Olatunde at the event posited that Local Government councils all over the world are regarded as development centres, regretting that the springboards had been destroyed by state governors due to selfishness and personal aggrandizement.
