The National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for pledging to tackle issues affecting smooth operations of local governments head-on.
Mr Ibrahim Khaleel, the President of the union, who is also a member of 2015 CONFAB, made this commendation in a statement he issued in Abuja on Sunday.
Khaleek said: “I like every bit of the speech; it was encouraging, assuring and inspirational. Mr President was kind to every Nigerian.
“ I am particularly happy on his determination to institute a strong inter-governmental platform for each tier of government to operate within limits.
“And his willingness to confront the issues in local government head-on is a welcome development,” he said.
Khaleel said Buhari’s declaration to be for everyone and to be for nobody was a clear testimony that he would run a people’s government of justice and fairness.
He also said the President’s pledge to ensure a responsible and accountable governance at all levels must be his watch words. (NAN)
