Council Boss Backs Calls For SNC


The Chairman of Amuwo-Odofin Local Government Area of Lagos State, south-west Nigeria, Comrade Ayodele Adewale has joined the calls for the convocation of Sovereign National Conference (SNC) while describing the ongoing constitution review as a charade.

Adewale  who was speaking when he received the Consular General of  the US, Jeff Hawkins at the council secretariat said the SNC will give Nigerians the opportunity to discuss important issues such as how they  like to be governed, resource control and the place of  local government in governance.

He said the constitution  review cannot  meet the aspirations of the people but SNC   will address salient issues including, resource control, autonomy for local governments, state police, council police and revenue allocation formula.

He noted that there were laws on environment but the enforcement was the issue to be taken seriously, expressing the belief in persuasion to make people reason and do the right things rather than being coerced.
