Association of local govts sets up interim management committee



The General Assembly of the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON) on Tuesday inaugurated a seven-member Interim Management Committee (IMC) to pilot the affairs of the association for the next six months.

The General Assembly had on May 30 resolved to set up the IMC.

It approved the constitution of the committee because the national leadership of the association had been inactive for the past eight months.

The IMC is headed by the Chairman of Suleja Local Government Area of Niger State, Abdullahi Maje.
