Must Read

Former Nigerian President, Goodluck Jonathan has said that security conflicts are happening in the country due to weakness of the lower tiers of government.

Jonathan, who spoke while delivering a graduation lecture at the National Institute for Security Studies in Abuja on Thursday, lamented that the local government system in the country was dead.

He, however, urged all the states to take deliberate steps to revive the local government system.

“Most of these security conflicts are happening because of the weakness of the lower tiers of government. The local government system that is supposed to interphase with communities directly and prevent this is dead in this country.

“Since the local governments are mainly managed by the states now because we are told that some states even take their money. I think the states must have strong departments that will coordinate the affairs of local governments.

“And these departments must have regular meetings with traditional rulers and community development committees,” he said.
