The Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has expressed concern over a bill in the House of Representatives calling for the abolition of local government councils in Nigeria.
“A lawmaker from Rivers sponsored a bill in the House of Representatives to abolish local government councils in Nigeria.
“Despite the fact that the governors refused to implement local government autonomy, we are currently witnessing an attempt to abolish local government councils in the country. It’s a gang against the masses.
“It’s an attempt to bring the country back. Therefore, we are asking the National Assembly to look into the matter, which is an attempt to take what is left of the grassroots population.
“I assured you that if local government autonomy was implemented by the governors, the issue of insecurity would have been a thing of the past, as some security issues can be dealt with locally,” he said.
Ambali added that once the local government councils are granted full autonomy, socio-economic activities will develop at the grassroots level.
He said NULGE had contacted the National Assembly leadership on the issue, adding that if this did not work well, they would go on strike.
