THE Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) is fully in support of the recent circular released by one of the anti-graft agencies, Nigeria Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), to curb the unending corrupt activities going on at the State and Local Government levels. We have always said it that cash transactions and withdrawals of the states from Joint LG Accounts is a threat to development at the grassroot; in fact, it even fans the embers of insecurity and major crisis, etc.

The Governors have made a mess of the Joint Account system and have deprived Local Governments of their development initiative in their local areas leading to bad leadership. Whatever checks and balances principle that informed its establishment in the first place are no longer valid. Therefore we fully support the circular and call on well meaning Nigerians to do same. 

The biggest challenge confronting the country today is leadership and its bane, corruption. The public officials deliberately violate guidelines that make a system decent. They use party affiliations and religion to see them through. It doesn’t happen in serious countries. We must call a spade by its name. Our institutions must begin to deal with individuals or groups according to the gravity of offence committed. Politicians must realize that they are accountable to us and not above the law.

While we commend the NFIU on this laudable initiative we equally urge the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Independent Corrupt Practices Commission (ICPC), Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and others to provide the necessary support. Governors must stop usurping the power of LG Chairmen. We are in a democracy and we should abide by all it stands for. We also use this medium to canvas for election of Local Government Chairmen so that they could be people’s representative, rather than being selected by the Governor as caretaker. This will go a long way in institutionalising decency in the system.
