A member of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council, Tolu Bankole, says the party’s presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, will revive ailing local government councils if elected.

This is even as Bankole expressed concerns that Nigeria more than ever before needs a unifier and visionary like the former Lagos State governor to fix its numerous socio-economic and insecurity challenge.

The PUNCH reported how former Governor of Ogun State, Gbenga Daniel, rued the deplorable state of local governments in Nigeria on March 3, saying their administration was comatose.

Daniel said the poor status of the councils had put pressure on state governors, who, according to him, are “sweating and trying to satisfy the people”.

The ex-governor, who spoke in Abeokuta during the South-West Conference of the Association of Ex-Local Government Chairmen, said until the third tier of the government was activated, dividends of democracy might not get to the people.

But Bankole, an APC Presidential Campaign Council member believed Tinubu holds the key to such revival.

The national leader of People with Disabilities in APC disclosed this in a statement made in Abuja on Wednesday.

He said, “The future is brighter with Tinubu in the saddle as president. He will revamp the LGA administration, which in turn will lead to the rapid development of the entire local governments in the country.

“He will unlock the untapped possibilities across the country through financial autonomy of LGAs in Nigeria. I can assure you this will open up rural communities by providing adequate security, power and good roads for rural community development”

While stating that the move will put an end to rural-urban migration, improve agriculture, create more jobs and better economy for people at the grassroots, Bankole also called on political actors to be civil in their engagements while prioritizing issue-based campaigns centred on actionable plans, realistic timelines and pragmatic roadmaps to ensure a peaceful transition.
