A bill for a law to amend the Kwara state local government (amendment) law no. 3 of 2006, which makes it impossible for the state governor to dissolve elected local government councils at will, has been passed by the state house of assembly.

The amended law initiated by Hon. Kamal Fagbemi, now makes it unconstitutional for the state governor to unilaterally dissolve democratically elected local government councils in the state.

Speaking after the passage of the amendment bill into law, the deputy speaker, Mr. Mathew Okedare, who presided over the sitting, directed the clerk of the house, Hajia Halimat Kperogi, to prepare a clean copy for the governor’s assent, pointing out that the third tier of government is strategic to accelerated socio-economic transformation of the state.
