The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE has said that members of the union can only support any political party that prioritizes actualisation of local government autonomy, in the 2023 general election.
The Union noted that State governments have abused and emasculated the local government system to the extent that it now looks like the councils were no more the third tier of government.
NULGE also stressed that payment of minimum wage would no longer be subjected to further debate in the states, noting that as the constitution demands the council workers in every state should be paid the minimum wages of N30,000 without encumbrances.
National President of NULGE, Comrade Ambali Olatunji made the remarks at the 8th quadrennial delegates conference of the Enugu state Chapter of NULGE.
