The Prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria (MCN), Dr Samuel Uche, has commended the Federal Government for its efforts to grant financial autonomy to local governments across the nation.
Uche made the commendation during the opening session of the MCN 46th/11th Biennal Conference with the theme “Strive for holiness and peace, without which no person can see God” held in Aba.
“We believe this will enhance grass roots development and the prompt payments of workers’ salaries.
“We, therefore, appeal to those at the local government levels not to divert funds accruing to them into white elephant projects.
“Our gathering at Aba is also meant to pray for God’s intervention in the affairs of government and the international community, especially our beloved country, Nigeria,” he said.
