“The local governments in Rivers State don’t even exist” a caller claims.

A caller on Nigeria Info’s Hard Facts says the road to local government autonomy, especially in Rivers state, is a tasking one. He was reacting to President Buhari’s allegation that state governors divert funds meant for the local government councils in their state.

“The Nigerian local government system is dead and Rivers state is a case study” he added.

He suggested that Executive Order 10 earlier signed by President Buhari which backs local government autonomy, be fully enforced in order to get the third tier of government working.
