Head, Department of Political Science University of Ilorin, Dr Gbade Ojo has stressed the need for the state assemblies and the judiciary to be transparent in handling finance when autonomy granted them fully becomes operational.
He stated this in an interview with Radio Nigeria while speaking on the executive order signed by President Muhammadu Buhari.
Dr Ojo who was the former Oyo State Chief of Staff, maintained that the head of the two arms of government must be wary of mismanagement in order not to soil their hands due to the large sum of money that would be in their custody.
Dr Ojo while lauding President Buhari on the executive order noted that the development would help the nation’s democracy to grow.
He however advised state governor’s to look inward to generate more revenue as the finances of those arms would no longer be in their care.
It would be recalled that President Buhari had last week signed executive order granting autonomy to the state assemblies and the judiciary to operate for effectiveness.
