Nigeria: Makinde not ready to conduct elections into Local government, Forwards request to Assembly for Caretakers' tenure elongation

Nigeria: Makinde not ready to conduct elections into Local government, Forwards request to Assembly for Caretakers' tenure elongation


It is becoming more clearer than ever that the Oyo State Governor, Engr Seyi Makinde is not ready to conduct elections into the local governmenta in the state in any moment now even despite the constitution of an electoral umpire for the purpose.


Makinde has requested for an extension of the tenure of the sixty-eight Local Government and Local Council Development Areas Caretaker Chairmen and their members, according to a request a letter forwarded to the Oyo State House of Assembly by the Governor.


The tenure of the Caretaker Chairmen whose appointments will expire on the 19th of December, 2020 are been requested for an elongation by the governor.


Makinde's letter wants the House of Assembly to approve the extension of tenure of the Caretaker Chairmen for another three months.


The letter read in part:


 " It is my wish that the House of Assembly gives this request accelerated hearing to avoid creating a vacuum in the governance of the Local Government Councils.


The Speaker Oyo State House of Assembly, Hon Adebo Ogundoyin who read the plenary said the House will work inline with the report generated by its Committee on Local Government and Chieftaincy Matters.


Hon Ogundoyin assured that the request will be attended to by the House on Friday during its plenary.


The local government administration in Nigeria since the advent of this current democratic dispensation in 1999 has been practically ineffective as State Governors rendered useless and a channel to reward their good/loyal boys and not the people at the grassroots.

German Merkel Says She Will Meet Belarus Opposition Leader Soon

German Merkel Says She Will Meet Belarus Opposition Leader Soon

(AFP) German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Wednesday she would hold talks with Belarus's main opposition leader, days after French President Emmanuel Macron met with her and pledged to help mediate in her country's crisis.

"I will soon meet the opposition leader Ms (Svetlana) Tikhanovskaya," Merkel told parliament, hailing the "courage" of the women demonstrating since a disputed election last month in which the opposition has claimed victory against President Alexander Lukashenko.

Merkel, who holds the rotating presidency of the European Union, said Germany did not recognise Lukashenko as the winner of the vote and that she condemned the government's violence against protesters.

"When you see the courage shown by the women who are appearing on the streets for a free life without corruption, then I can only say: I admire that and find it truly impressive," she said.

Macron spoke with Tikhanovskaya this week on a visit to Lithuania in her most high-profile meeting so far since the Belarus election.

"We will do our best as Europeans to help mediate and we will come back to OSCE mediation in order to progress," Macron said.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) has offered to help broker a negotiated end to the crisis in Belarus.

Mass protests that have continued since the election have been met with a bloody crackdown and Tikhanovskaya's husband Sergei is in prison accused of trying to overthrow the government.
