President Buhari Slams State Governors Over Corrupt Practices Surrounding Local Councils Funds

President Muhammadu Buhari slammed State Governors on Thursday over the corrupt practices surrounding the fund allocation for local councils’ administrations.

News360 info gathered that the president has described the treatment of the administration at the local government level by governors as unfair.

According to him, it beats anyone’s imagination how some state governors would collect funds on behalf of local council areas in their various states and remit half to the council chairman, noting that such funds further deplete the remittance in further pilfering of public resources.

The President said this at an event hosted for members of the Senior Executive Course 44 (2022) of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS) at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

He cited one of such instances he had witnessed involving an unnamed governor, adding that such corrupt practices perpetrated by some governors in dispensing resources meant for local councils’ administrations are disturbing.

The President said such instances can be related to a lack of integrity among many of those holding such offices, and are despicable and speak of the height of corruption in the country.
