21 Nigerian States Operate Local Governments with Unelected Caretaker Committees, Violating Constitution

Written by gcsjjustified

According to multiple news reports, at least 21 states in Nigeria are currently running their local government areas with caretaker committees appointed by the state governors, rather than duly elected local government councils. This practice has been criticized by the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), which has called on state governors to allow local governments to enjoy full autonomy as enshrined in the constitution. The use of caretaker committees is seen by some as a way for state governments to maintain control over local government finances and decision-making, undermining the principles of grassroots democracy.
