A Chieftain of All Progressives Congress (APC) Dr. Davidson Nnajiofor Nnamani has tasked both the National and States’ Assemblies to ensure the inclusion of Local Government Areas autonomy in the on-going constitutional amendments.

He stated that, “it is only the full autonomy of local area councils that can bring about effective grassroots developments in the country. “The states are stifling the local governments and until their grips on the councils are lifted there will be no meaningful developments in the rural areas’”

Dr Nnamani, a former Governorship aspirant of the Labour Party in Enugu State in last 2023 general elections stated these in Ikem, the Headquarters of Isi Uzo Local Government Area while addressing All Progressives’ Congress, (APC) faithfuls on his return journey to the party.

Dr Nnamani who holds doctorate degree in Defence and Strategic Studies from the prestigious Nigerian Defence Academy, (Africa’s topmost Military University) was a founding member of APC in Isi Uzo and indeed Enugu State before his defection to Labour Party last year.
