NGO call on Gov Masari to implement Executive order 10

A non governmental Organisation in Katsina State, the Citizens Participation Against Corruption Initiative has called on Governor Aminu Bello Masari to expedite the implementation of the Executive Order 10 in Katsina state as signed by President Buhari.

This is contained in a letter with the title ‘A CALL TO IMPLEMENT EXECUTIVE ORDER 10 IN LINE WITH SECTION 121 (3) OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA’ signed by the Executive Director of the NGO, Comrade Bishir Dauda Sabuwar Unguwa addressed to the Governor dated 4th of June and seen by Katsina Post.

Below is the content of the letter:

A CALL TO IMPLEMENT EXECUTIVE ORDER 10 IN LINE WITH SECTION 121 (3) OF THE CONSTITUTION OF THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
We have crave your indulgence sir, if you can recall in 2017 the National Assembly has amended section 121 (3) of the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to grant full financial autonomy to state Judiciaries and Legislatures.
Unfortunately, three years after this historic amendment, no state in the country deems fit to comply with the amended provision. The grand excuse has been always advanced by state governors for violating the constitution was “lack of modalities for implementation”.
As a former law-maker and in fact, former speaker of the House of Representatives, you are aware that non implementation of laws, government policies and programmes have become the bane of Nigeria’s development.
Therefore, to break this jinx of non implementation syndrome, Mr. president has acted patriotically under section 5 of the constitution by signing the executive order 10 to pave way for proper implementation of financial autonomy for the remaining two arms of government (Legislature & Judiciary) at sub national level.
As a civil society organization, which is committed to good governance through fighting corruption, we fully endorse and support the implementation of Executive Order 10 in Katsina State; and we are urging you too to do so.
This is because, the order will not only guarantee the principle of separation of power at sub national level, but also resucitate and strengthen the remaining two arms of government- legislature and Judiciary to be able to optimally perform their statutory functions.
It is also envisaged that financial autonomy for state Judiciary and legislature would enhance the mechanism of checks and balances among the three arms of government, thereby checkmating arbitrariness and dictatorship by any arm of government. The cumulative results include improved in accountability, transparency and democracy.
Thus on behalf of true advocates of change and good governance in Katsina state, we urge you to be the first state governor in Nigeria who will implement financial autonomy for state legislature and Judiciary so as to bequeath a sound legacy in good governance.
Yours Sincerely,
Comrade Bishir Dauda Sabuwar Unguwa Katsina
Executive Director, Citizens participation against corruption Initiative
