Ogun reviews councils administrative law
Fourteen years after its last review, Ogun State Government has concluded the Review and Amendment of Guidelines on Administrative Procedures for Local Councils, to accelerate development at the grassroots.
While receiving the report of the Committee in his office, the Commissioner for Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Afolabi Afuape said the reviewed guidelines, when made official would be one of the major achievements of the ministry.
He added that the laws couldn’t have been better from any other source but the committee of professionals and intellects, drawn from the State Civil Service, inaugurated in February 2020.
Afuape commended the committee for a thorough job, saying their services could still be required in the review of Local Council laws, where they would make presentations to the House of Assembly for further deliberations and amendments, to allow for its use in the present situation.
The Chairman of the Committee and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Kunle Osota said it was discovered that the Local Government law was last reviewed 14 years ago. He emphasised that the review became necessary to capture current happenings and accelerate the fulfillment of the dreams and visions of the present administration.
