Threats From NULGE To Tinubu, Atiku, And Peter Obi: State Your Position On LG Autonomy

The National Association of Local Government Employees, or NULGE, stated that it will only encourage voters to support a presidential candidate who supports or has plans for local government autonomy.

This was said during a briefing on Thursday at the union’s headquarters in Abuja by Olatunji Ambali, the national president of NULGE.
Out of the 36 states, he added, only Kogi and Abia had passed the Local Government Autonomy Bill.

Ambali, therefore, urged the three prominent presidential flag bearers from All Progressives Congress, Peoples Democratic Party and Labour Party, to come out with a plan on how to achieve local government autonomy.

He said: “On that background, NULGE wants to call on the prominent political candidates, Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu of APC, Atiku Abubakar of PDP, and Peter Obi of Labour party to come out categorically and clearly, to let Nigerians know their mindset and plan on local government autonomy.

“They must come out. What do they intend to do? Any candidate that failed to state categorically his stand on local government autonomy should not be voted for by Nigerian people.

“NULGE would go out to mobilise against such candidate.

“We would be able to stand a good ground to vote for a candidate that intends to grant local government autonomy or sustain local government autonomy struggle.

“Apart Kogi and Abia states that have passed autonomy bill, we want to call on the remaining 34 states assembly to see it as a patriotic duty the quick passage of Local Government Autonomy Bill

“Nigeria should not be allowed to disintegrate completely. The threat of insecurity, joblessness, youth restiveness, banditry, terrorism, and poverty that is confronting Nigerian masses, need to be controlled.

“The way to fix this is by granting absolute autonomy to local government system.”
