Exposed: How Plateau ALGON Is Plotting To Return LGA Workers To Their Respective LGAs
The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE), Plateau State Chapter said its attention has been drawn to an allegation of returning them back to their respective Local Government areas of origin.
In a statement signed by the publicity Secretary of NULGE Plateau state chapter, Aminchi Joshua in Jos says NULGE would resist any attempt to localized the affairs of LGAs to their own local government.
He said the grand plan by the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) misleading the Executive Governor of Plateau State, Governor Simon Lalong to approve their plot won’t scale through as no worker can be returned to their Local Government.
Joshua says, this chase orchestrated by ALGON is considered as a mirage and a violation of statutory provisions of the LGA constitution is also a deliberate ploy aimed at denting the reputation of His Excellency the Governor of Plateau State Rt. Hon Simon Lalong before civil servants in the state.
NULGE applauded Lalong a seasoned lawyer, whose administration since inception has promoted and anchored in his five pillars policy while coming on board his unrelenting pursuit of lasting peace and social integration as a cardinal tool for entrenching democracy in the state.
This orchestrated sinister scheme by ALGON which is at variance with the subsisting Local Government Service Commission Edict of 1986 which became operational on 27th November 1986 and has in its fifth schedule (1) provided thus; The Commission shall have powers without prejudice to the powers vested in the Military Governor-To appoint, confirm, promote, transfer services, or second persons to offices in the Unified Local Government Service.
The efficacy of the legal instrument establishing the Local Government Services Commission and its functions is further buttressed and also in tandem with the provisions of the local government administration and bye claws in Nigeria, where in Chapter II, with heading professionalized local government service.
