Buhari Grants Financial Autonomy To State Legislature, Judiciary Via Executive Order
President Buhari has granted financial autonomy to the legislature and judiciary across the 36 states of the country.
He granted the autonomy via a new executive order signed on Friday, and made this known in a recent post on Twitter.
The executive order means that the legislative and judicial arms of government across the states will no longer be tied to the apron strings of powerful governors and will receive their financial allocations straight from the center.
Announcing the signing, Buhari added that his administration would “continue to do everything to strengthen the principles and practice of democratic governance in Nigeria. He wrote;
This administration will continue to do everything to strengthen the principles and practice of democracy and democratic governance in Nigeria.”
