Declare state of emergency on LG administration, NULGE tells President Tinubu

The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has called on the Federal Government to declare a state of emergency on local government administration in order to stem the tide of infrastructure decay, poverty, unemployment and rural-urban migration.

The National President of NULGE, Comrade Ambali Akeem Olatunji, made this call at its National Executive Council (NEC) meeting of the union, held in Abuja.

Olatunji also asked the government to create a special intervention fund to enable reversal of the state of local governments across Nigeria.

NULGE also demanded that local government workers be paid a special rural allowance to encourage them to serve and sustain development in the rural areas and discourage the tide of rural-urban migration.
