To come your way also; Supreme Court grants Local Governments financial autonomy

Written by on July 11, 2024

The Supreme Court declared today that it is unconstitutional for state governors to hold funds allocated to Local Government administrations.

In its lead judgement read by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the apex court says the 774 local government councils in the country should manage their funds themselves.

Justice Agim says local governments have since stopped receiving the money meant for them from the state governors who act in their stead, noting that the 774 local government councils in the country should manage their funds themselves.

He dismissed the preliminary objections of the defendants, that is; the state governors.
