Regarding the controversy surrounding local government dissolution, Doguwa maintained that it remains a subject of litigation.

However, he urged legislators to prioritize local government autonomy, emphasizing its role in strengthening democracy.

The House of Representatives has played a significant role in passing crucial bills, including the Petroleum Bill.

Doguwa believed that achieving local government autonomy will contribute to Nigeria’s progress and restore citizens’ confidence.

He concluded, “Let us go the extra mile to ensure that local government autonomy becomes a reality. I call upon the Speaker to personally chair the Constitutional Review Committee, and together, we will work our magic.”
