Local Government workers react as FG begins direct allocation to councils


Nigerian Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has commended the Federal Government for introducing financial guidelines for local government areas in the country through the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU).

The Federal Government had ordered that federal allocations to LGAs be disbursed directly to their respective bank accounts starting from June 2019.

The union made this known through its Ondo State Chairman, Bola Taiwo, during a media briefing on Monday in Akure, the Ondo state capital, saying it would ensure transparency and grassroots development.

Taiwo said the union would train and educate its members to look into activities of each local government so that there would not be any violation of the guidelines.
