Senator Mao Ohuabunwa has renewed call for full financial autonomy of Local Governments in the country.
The former Speaker ECOWAS Parliament who made the call Friday after casting his ballots at his Atani Arochukwu polling unit in the Abia State LGA election, said real development could only be witnessed at the third tier of government when councils have unfettered access to their funds.
Senator Ohuabunwa regretted that despite the growing clamour for full financial autonomy for LGAs in the country those who benefit from the current system have made its realisation difficult.
The former Senate Committee Chairman on Primary Health Care and Communicable Diseases, expressed satisfaction over the peaceful conduct of the Chairmanship and counselorship election.
He commended the Abia State Independent Electoral Commission, ABSIEC for the peaceful conduct of the exercise in his ward and expressed optimistism that the election would also be peaceful through out the state.
Ohuabunwa appealed to participants to accept the outcome of the election when the results would be announced.
