The Presidential Implementation Committee on autonomy of state legislature and judiciary has tasked state governors on full implementation of autonomy for the two arms of government.

This is contained in a 12 point communique issued at the end a two-day retreat in Abuja on Friday.

The communique was signed by the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, and Chairman of the committee, the Secretary, Ita Enang and 20 other members of the committee.

The committee noted that following the assent by President Muhammadu Buhari to the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (Fourth Alteration) in June 2018, granting financial autonomy to state legislatures and judiciary, it was observed that it was honored more in breach than in compliance.

The Retreat was attended by a cross section of stakeholders from the Legislature, Judiciary, Representatives of Judicial Staff Union of Nigeria, Representatives of Parliamentary Staff Union of Nigeria, Civil Society Organisations, among others.
