The Chairman of Lafia Local Government Area of Nasarawa State, Maifata Aminu Mu’azu, has been elected president of the Association of Local Government Nigeria (ALGON).
The polytechnic teacher-turned-politician takes over from David Kolade Alabi, who held the position between 2019 and 2024 when his 5-year tenure expired.
According to Obiora Orji, the spokesman of ALGON, Mu’azu was elected last Thursday by the National Executive Council committee meeting of the body.
Until his election, he was the deputy president of the association. He also at different times served as the national treasurer of the body.
He had earlier also served as Special Adviser on Solid Mineral Development to former Nasarawa State governor, Tanko Al- Makura between 2017 and 2018.
Reacting to his emergence, Nasarawa State governor, Abdullahi Sule, expressed optimism that his emergence will spur development at the third tier of government in the country.
In a statement signed by his chief press secretary, Ibrahim Addra, the governor described Mua’zu’s emergence as the national president as a classic case of “whom the cap fits.”
