Supreme Court reserves judgement on LG autonomy

The Supreme Court on Thursday reserved judgement in the suit filed for the Federal Government by the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Lateef Fagbemi, against States in relation to the dispute over the autonomy of Local Governments in the country.

A seven-member panel, led by Justice Mohammed Lawal Garba, said a date for the judgment would be communicated to parties and their counsel.

Justice Garba made the announcement on the reservation of the judgement shortly after lawyers to parties adopted their final addresses and made final submissions.
