Breaking:LG Autonomy, FG/NFIU Wins Case Against Governors

Published

on

 

 

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja presided over by Hon. Justice Inyang Ekwo today delivered a judgement in favour of the Federal government and Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU), on Local government joint accounts nationwide.

The NFIU had in June 2019 issued guidelines aimed at curbing crime vulnerabilities created by cash withdrawals from local government accounts by various state governments.

The Nigerian Governors Forum sued the FG and NFIU for interfering with state government powers to initiate transactions on Local Government Joint accounts citing provisions of the 1999 constitution.

The NFIU issued a guideline on money laundering risk and vulnerabilities advising all banks not to honour transactions from joint accounts. It directed that the States/Local Governments Joint Accounts should used only for receiving funds and subsequently transferring them to Local government accounts only.
The guidelines also reduced cash withdrawal from local government accounts to five hundred thousand Naira daily.

Immediately after the guidelines came into place, most local governments across the country stopped facing challenges in payment of staff salaries.
While reacting to the judgement the Director/CEO of NFIU, Mr Modibbo Tukur said the judgement is good because the Federal government is always ready to protect both states and local governments by making funds available for their governance responsibility. He stressed further that funds can now be decided on by local councils which can be channelled to improving local security.

The CEO NFIU stressed that “from this judgement and from today all transactions on Local Government funds will be disclosed to ICPC and EFCC 100% and will be reported continuously”.
