Gbajabiamila said that the autonomy of the third tier of the government rested on the people at the grassroots.
He recalled that the national assembly had successfully amended the constitution to grant autonomy to the local government in the time past but was turned down by the States as they couldn’t muster the required two-third majority of the votes.
