How To Make Power Devolution Work, By APC Stalwart

A Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC)in Lagos State, Chief Remi Williams, has lent his support to the agitation for devotion of powers to the states. He said though devolution of powers is good, care must be taken in adopting it.

In an interview, the octogenarian said the concept forms a crucial part of the constitution.  He said: ‘’When we talk of devolution, we must be very cautious. There are certain aspects that we need not negotiate with the Federal Government. No matter what, the Federal Government will control defence, that is Army Air force, Navy etc. That aspect is not negotiable. For instance, during the Cuba crisis, the United States President John F. Kennedy took a decisive step against Fidel Castro of Cuba to checkmate his excessive actions. So also President Muhammadu Buhari took immediate steps against the Gambian insurgency. In a nutshell, devolution must have its limit. It must not be extended to foreign policy.’’

Williams said those seeking restructuring should note that the National Union of Local Government Employees (NULGE) members who are calling councils’ autonomy would now be justified ‘’rather than be an appendage to the state for their finance.”
