DSP Describes LG Autonomy A Big Challenge Facing Constitutional Review

Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege, has disclosed that the Local Government Autonomy Bill is one of the biggest challenges facing the ongoing review of the 1999 Constitution and remains a priority to the executive arm.

Senator Omo-Agege, who is the Chairman of the National Assembly Constitution Review Committee, disclosed this to State House correspondents on Thursday after a private meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in his office.

The expectation is that the state houses of assembly would take an independent stance on the matter rather than align with the positions of their state governors, the lawmaker added.

He, however, expressed optimism that there will be more votes in favour of this bill, particularly because the President of the Senate, Ahmad Lawan, is actively working to find a resolution.
