Surging insecurity can be curbed by LG Autonomy-Reps Namdas

The surging insecurity in Nigeria can be tackled by ensuring the viability of the local government system.

The surging insecurity in Nigeria can be tackled by ensuring the viability of the local government system, that’s according to Hon. Abdulrazak Namdas, a member of the National Assembly’s Special Committee on Constitution Review.

Hon. Namdas made this known while speaking on the ongoing public hearing on the constitutional amendment on Channel television’s breakfast program, Sunrise Daily.

The lawmaker said that local government autonomy will make the third tier of government to be more viable and create jobs for the unemployed youths.

“One of the ways to tackle the issue of insecurity in this country is to ensure that the local government system is active and productive. This can be made possible by ensuring that there is full autonomy for the local government system. This I believe will allow the chairmenn to carry out projects which will, in turn, create both skilled and unskilled jobs for the teeming youth in their respective communities.

” I must also say that States should be able to think outside the box in terms of generating Internally Generated Revenue to support their programs rather than relying on the federal government and borrowing. We should be able to do better as a country by ensuring that we are economically independent and that our youths are gainfully employed,” Namdas said.

The lawmaker who is representing Ganye, Jada, Tongo, and Mayo-Belwa federal constituency at the House of Representatives called on Nigerians to believe in the ongoing Constitution amendment exercise and come all out with memoranda of things they think should be added or removed from the 1999 constitution.

” I agree that we have numerous challenges in this country most of which are insecurity, unemployment, and the economy. I am also aware that this ongoing exercise will provide us an opportunity to come up with solutions to tackle some of these problems. What we as a committee wants from Nigerians is for them to trust the system and come up with memoranda containing things they think should be in the constitution and those things they think should not be in the constitution. We have engaged the services of Constitution experts to help us in this herculean task, and believe me, the result will be beneficial to all,” Hon. Namdas added.

The National Assembly Constitution review committee has been receiving memoranda from various states of the federation since the beginning of the exercise. It is expected that such documents will be scrutinized to insert and remove some articles and clauses in the 1999 constitution to create lasting solutions to some of the challenges bedeviling the nation.
