Sokoto
Sokoto has unfriendly climate conditions with
temperature going as high as 45C on a
normal day. Most parts of the state are rural
areas and over eighty percent (80%) of the
inhabitants of Sokoto practice one form of
agriculture or another.


2. Katsina
Katsina is a state in North central Nigeria
and has the highest poverty prevalence
among all states in the region.


3. Adamawa
Formed in 1991 from the extinct Gongola
state, Adamawa has of late been terrorized
by the Boko Haram terrorists, disrupting its
economic development and growth.


4. Gombe
Gombe is another North eastern state which
suffers sporadic attacks from terrorists.


5. Jigawa
Jigawa state is situated in the north-western
part of the country. It is mostly populated by
the Hausa/Fulani, who are spread
throughout the state. It has a 74.1 percent
poverty rate.

among the top 9 poorest country.



8. Bauchi

have driven tourists away from the area.


9. Kebbi

State,Dosso Regionin the Republic of Niger

concluded Sir Ahmadu Bello International
Airport (SABIA), stands out as one of
Nigeria’s most sophisticated airports and is

of the state,” by the Zamfara Budget Working
Group.

rate which is 33.8%. It was followed by Osun
(37.9%) and Ondo (45.7%).

It is followed by the Northeast region which
has 69.1% and the North central region
which has 60.7%.

Fake list
From NBS[sup][/sup], it can be deduced that Rivers State, with its high IGR and relatively low debt, is Nigeria's most sustainable state, with Lagos, Enugu, Delta and Katsina all trailing in that order to make up Nigeria's top 5 most sustainable states.

Counting from the bottom, on the other hand, Plateau, Osun, Nasarawa, Borno and Ekiti are ranked as Nigeria's least sustainable states, with their low IGRs and inexplicably high debts.

On a personal region-by-region ranking (gotten by adding all the indices for every state in each region and dividing by the number of states in said region), the South-South is by far Nigeria's most sustainable region with a cumulative average sustainability index of 8.27

Coming a very distant second is the South-East with an index of 6.43

In third place is the North-West with an index of approximately 5.45

Number 4 is the South-West with 5.43

Coming fifth place with an index of 4.39, is the North-Central

And scraping the bottom of the barrel at last place, is the insurgency-torn North-East with an index of 3.97

Olodo, How can a poor state generate more funds internally than "richer" states? How? Besides Ebonyi still gets complete FG funds monthly whereas a "richer" state is running on only 55 million. comedy

China, America has the highest IGR in the world, but Qatar, luxemborg, singapore, switzerland are the richest Countries..
OSUN spends more than her income...

Ebonyi pays her workers. No poor people..

Osun is indepted to a large amount payable in 50yrs.. Workers go hungry...

Check out the substainability statictic.. In 35 position out of 36, The propability for Osun state to survive is low..

Why spend more than what you earn?
