Good.

So many sensible comments.

Let's learn to appropriate blames rightly.

Buhari said nothing but the truth.

He has made an EO on that. The governors have refused to adhere to it.

What can the FG do?

Almost nothing. The democratic system permeates the governors to be selfish and misbehave. That is one reason I am scared of State Police. If it happens, it can guarantee a party ruling a state till eternity.

You are so on point with this. Governors are immensely destroying the country due to their selfishness.
Every politician is selfish and destructive. It is just sad. Fixing this country requires public office holders making the conscious decision to put nation ahead of self. I wonder if politics in Nigeria will ever get to this point.

Is he not the one overseeing the Nigerian state?

It's his responsibility to make it work.

If LGA is dead... He should pressure governors to wake it up.

Instead he is talking like an opposition.

if the local govt and judiciary are autonomous which is what the governors are also refusing, no one can abuse state police.

And it is the FG that killed governors! They hold back funds until governors will have to visit Abuja and give them kickbacks just to have their own money for proper state functions!

The federal government is capable for the rot in Nigeria. Everything you are currently seeing is a precedence from the top!

Men NL is populated by lots of dumb and willfully ignorant lots

What do you agree?

Buhari should be telling us steps he has taken to empower the local governments, to give them autonomy and also devolution of powers to the LGA.

Than telling us local government is killed.

Buhari is literally telling us he is clueless to the problems of the Local Government and you are agreeing.

You are clueless.

He granted financial autonomy to the Local Governments... I guess when the news came out, you were (and still) struggling with comprehension of it....

State policing will only become a problem if it is implemented as poorly as the LGAs have been. There is nothing in the constitution or in established case law that requires state police chiefs or the funding of the policemen to be under the authority of a governor, and the chief of police could just as easily be an elected role, at both the LGA ("Sheriff" ) and state levels. For extra measure, their elections could also be staggered to never overlap with those of the state governors, and their campaigns could be barred from receiving funding from other than residents of the locations they aspire to manage.

What is so frustrating about Buhari palming off responsibility for weak LGAs to governors, and all the ridiculous efforts by his apologists to whitewash this failure, is that he is the head of the executive, the very branch charged with executing the laws of the land! If the governors fail to abide by any lawful measures Buhari passes to free LGAs from their control, he has both a right and a duty to drag them to court and if necessary subtract any seized LGA funding directly from the federal allocations of the states. Why then has he not bothered to do these things?

The things Buhari has the power to do legally, he neglects, while he doesn't hesitate to violate the constitution by enforcing an illegal ban on the usage of Twitter without even a court order. This choice of priorities says either Buhari doesn't have the first clue what his office is and what he can do with the powers he has, or he simply doesn't care, and is only mouthing excuses for chronic underperformance. Personally I suspect both things are true at the same time.

SocialJustice: :
The president has no power over governors and how they manage local governments. Buhari is the best thing to happen to local governments as he created financial autonomy for them but governors still found a way to circumvent the law to steal blindly from local governments.

So local government are created by who? the President?

Are you educated?

Abuse does not give your point weight.

That is why I said steps.

Holding a discussion forum for instance with the Governors on why they should adhere to the decision.
Carrying out some enforcement processes with the judiciary and legislator etc.

We need steps, not just words.

The Governors can never agree to the judiciary or local govt autonomy ish, the VP a whole professor of law once appealed to them but still, they went to court on the matter. The Governors have become emperors, only true restructuring with the abolishing of states for regions can cut their wings

Buhari is right on this, as much as I hate him, he's very right and correct. OBJ killed LGs, LGs had been killed before Buhari came in 2015, joint allocation killed LGs, that's what I always tell people, LGs are being run by Governors, no LG can get #100m from #300m, they only get what to pay members of staff and other admin recurrent expenditure while the rest is used by Governor. Everybody knew the LGs are dead, the Governors, senators, all knew but don't know what to do cause of self interest at the detriment of the people.
