Senate President, Ahmed Lawan, Blames The Uncontrollable Insecurity In The Country Under President Buhari On The Absence Of A Functional Local Government System, Says The Time Has Finally Come To Ensure The LGA System Functions Effectively

The President of the Senate, Ahmed Lawan, has on Thursday, blamed the rising insecurity in the country on the non-functional Local Government system, Page 36 learnt.

Senator Lawan disclosed this while addressing State House Correspondents in an interview after the Eid prayers.

He explained further that the lack of autonomy potentially inhibits solutions, as well as efforts by the Federal and State Governments towards addressing the nation’s security challenge.

His words: “We are all Leaders, and we are in this together, the solutions must come from us regardless of what levels of Leadership we are, whether at the Federal Level, State Level, or even at the Local Government level.

“I also want to take this opportunity to say that we have diminished the Local Government system. I think we can attribute the security issues to the absence of a Functional Local Government System.

“I think the time has come for us to take up the challenge and ensure that the Local Government system functions. This is as we look for ways to curb the security challenge. We must never neglect the local government system. We must go back to our local government system to ensure they are autonomous and functional.”
