Gbajabiamila Urges Houses of Assembly to save LGA system in Nigeria.

The Speaker, House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has urged State Houses of Assembly to save the Local Government Area system in Nigeria from imminent collapse through its instrument of law making.

Gbajabiamila who made the appeal at the opening of a one-day round-table with Speakers of State Houses of Assembly in Lagos, said a revitalised local government system would bring about effective governance.

He said for a more robust 9th Aassembly, there was need for State Houses of Assembly to invest in knowledge acquisition by running short and long term courses in areas such as budget implementation and related programmes so that through oversight engagements, they could insist on real value for money on contracts awarded for the well-being of citizens in whose mandate they stood.

The Speaker made it known that the National Assembly would commence its process on the work of its constitutional review committee.
