The Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) has hailed President Bola Tinubu’s dedication to empowering local governments during his first year in office as a groundbreaking move that has positively impacted communities at the grassroots level, calling it a game-changer for grassroots communities.

Commemorating the administration’s first anniversary in a statement on Wednesday, May 30, ALGON national president, Hon. Aminu Mu’azu Maifata, congratulated President Tinubu on his commitment to grassroots development, praising his democratic and supportive approach to local government development.

Specifically, ALGON acknowledged the President’s efforts to address long-standing constitutional challenges hindering effective local government administration in Nigeria, expressing eagerness to witness the continued impact of his Renewed Hope Agenda.

Maifata said: “We are thrilled to celebrate this milestone with Mr. President, who has consistently demonstrated his commitment to empowering local governments and enhancing grassroots development.

“His leadership has been a game-changer for our communities, and we are eager to see the continued impact of his Renewed Hope Agenda.

“We believe that the President’s commitment to resolving these challenges will have a profound impact on the lives of Nigerians and the development of our nation as a whole.”

Noting that the President’s support for local government development dates back to his tenure as Governor of Lagos State, he said, “The President’s understanding of the importance of local government in driving national progress is unparalleled, and we are grateful for his unwavering support.”

Maifata, however, extended the association’s full support to the President’s administration, expressing optimism that the remaining challenges will be addressed and resolved under his leadership while reaffirming their commitment to collaboration and progress.

“We stand ready to work with the President and his team to ensure that local governments continue to thrive and play their critical role in building a stronger, more prosperous Nigeria,” the ALGON president added.
