The case, which could redefine the autonomy of the country’s 774 local government areas, awaits a final decision from the nation’s highest judicial authority.

The suit, filed through the Attorney General of the Federation, challenges the current state of financial independence for local governments and seeks to enforce constitutional provisions for their autonomy.
