The National Union of Local Government Employees has commended President Muhammadu Buhari for pledging to tackle issues affecting smooth operations of local governments head-on.
Ibrahim Khaleel, the president of the union, made this commendation in a statement on Sunday.
Mr. 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.”
Mr. Khaleel said Mr. 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 responsible and accountable governance at all levels must be his watch words.
