NULGE threatens showdown over Reps’ move to scrap LGs

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has vowed to mobilize all its members and Nigerians to resist plans by the House of Representatives to scrap local government as the third tier of government.

A bill for the removal of local councils as a constitutionally-recognized and funded tier of government in Nigeria, sponsored by Solomon Bob (PDP, Rivers), was read for the first time on November 24. 2021.

Some governors are believed to be pushing for scrapping local councils.

Addressing journalists in Abuja weekend, NULGE President Ambali Olatunji, said: “We know this is a serious challenge to local governments, and we’re saying this, very soon if we engage them (NASS) and the leadership is not doing what is needful, we might direct our members to shut down the country in all the 774 LGAs, but we hope they’ll not allow it to degenerate to that level.

“Once you delist local government as a tier of government, you’ve killed local government. Even now that the local governments remain a tier of government, the governors are pauperizing local governments and there’s a lot of swindling of local government funds. A strike is imminent and will be the ultimate if the legislators remain adamant. There’ll be a mass protest first before we’ll likely shut down all local governments across the country.”
