The National Union of Local Government Employees on Thursday backed the Federal Government’s stance that state governors were looting local government allocation.

The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), had said the stunted development experienced at the local government level was caused by governors and local government officials who “pocket” public funds.

Buhari flayed the governors over what he described as poor governance at the grassroots.

Buhari said this on Thursday at a parley with members of the Senior Executive Course No. 44 (2022) of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, held at the State House Banquet Hall, Abuja. Regents

The President’s comments followed the Course 44 presentation themed, ‘Strengthening Local Governance in Nigeria: Challenges, Options and Opportunities.’
