LG autonomy: NULGE set to tackle state assemblies

The Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has revealed plans to engage state assemblies, in other for the passage of the local government autonomy bill.
NULGE made this known during its National Executive Council meeting in Abuja, where the union resolved to declare a national day of prayers to make the members of houses of assembly support councils’ autonomy.
The association’s President, Comrade Ibraheem Khaleel, said the union would sustain its advocacy and ensure that the constitution review was achieved.
Khaleel pointed out that the statement credited to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Yakubu Dogara, that the state assemblies should be held responsible, if the proposal failed was very sensitive.
Khaleel said apart from organising prayers across all the 774 local governments, the association would sensitise state assemblies and councillors to approve local government autonomy.
He pointed out that since the National Assembly had approved the proposal and transmitted it to the state assemblies, the union would ensure that the state legislatures approved it.
