The Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees has described those calling for the scrapping of local government councils in the country as enemies of Nigerians and democracy.

The National President of NULGE, Ambali Olatunji, told newsmen in Enugu on Saturday that those behind the plot were insensitive to the plight and governance needs of the majority of Nigerians in the rural areas.

Olatunji spoke on the sideline of a bill before the House of Representatives seeking to abolish the third tier of government.

The bill is being sponsored by a House of Representatives member, Bob Solomon.

Olatunji stated that the NULGE was planning to occupy the country homes of all Federal lawmakers over the plan to scrap the local government system, warning that the sponsor of the bill and other lawmakers who showed support for it would face the wrath of the entire Nigeria local government workers soon.

Olatunji said if the bill was not suspended immediately, the workers will in the next few days stage a protest at the National Assembly, after which they will storm the country homes of all members of the parliament.

The NULGE boss urged governors, who believed in the local governments and have conducted elections into them, to speak out against this plan to destabilise a system that draws government closer to the people.
