Some Labour Unions have commended the Federal Government and Financial Institutions for the smooth take off of the Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit guidelines, NFIU in the country.
The Unions are; Nigeria Union of Local Government Employees, NULGE and the Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies.
NULGE President Ibrahim Khaleel, and the Senior Staff Association General Secretary, Ayo Olorunfemi, gave the commendation in separate statements in Abuja.
Khaleel said that the adherence of financial institutions to guidelines of NFIU on the Joint state-Local government funds would spur development and end insecurity in the country.
On his part the Senior Staff Association of Statutory Corporations and Government Owned Companies General Secretary, Ayo Olorunfemi, said the initiative was commendable.
According to Olorunfemi, the state governors have over the year’s, frustrated development at the grassroots by refusing to allow financial autonomy for local councils.
