12 Ways APC Wants Nigeria To Be Restructured,among Is Merging & State Creation. by sarrki(m): 1:31am On Feb 09, 2018
The All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee on True Federalism has tabled twelve issues for discussion during the public hearings on restructuring scheduled to commence on Septemeber 18, 2017 in various parts of the country.

Besides, the committee said it will consult the report of the 2005 Political Reforms Conference, the 2014 National Confab and reports of previous national conferences in its assignment to determine the party’s position on restructuring.


The Secretary of the Committee, Senator Olubunmi Adetunmbi, unfolded the 12-point agenda at a news conference in Abuja.

According to him, the public hearing which will hold in Benin, Enugu and Ibadan will end with a meeting with civil society organisations and professional groups in Abuja on October 9.

Adetunmbi said the committee met four times and identified 12 key issues for discussion during the public hearing.

He said: “Accordingly, and pursuant to its mandate, the Committee met, deliberated and listed out the following issues and called for memoranda from members of the public.


“The 12 issues Nigerians will have opportunity to air their views on are:
1. Creation/merger of states and the framework and guidelines for achieving that

2. Derivation principle bordering on what percentage of federal collectible revenue should be given back

3. Devolution of powers on what item on the exclusive legislative list should be transferred to the recurrent list and federating units, especially state and community police, prisons

4. Federation Units: Should Nigeria be based on regions or zones or 36-state structure


5. Fiscal federalism and revenue allocation.

6. Form of government (parliamentary or presidential)

7. Independent candidacy.

8. Land tenure system.

9. Local government autonomy.

10. Power sharing and rotation

11. Resource control; and

12. Type of legislature.

Adetunmbi said contributions would not be limited to members of the party, but to all Nigerians who have something meaningful to say on the development of the country.

“We must recognise that the work of nation building is an ongoing process in which every stakeholder has a role to play, by making his own contribution. In this case, the APC as a national political party is an institution and a stakeholder that has a role to play in making its own contribution.

“This exercise is its own way of making that contribution. The APC felt that it is not necessary to think alone among ourselves, but to also ask members of the public what they think. That is why everything this Committee is doing is not about its own opinion, but harvesting the opinion of the ordinary people in order to form an opinion. After all, no political party exists just by itself, but by the mandate of people.

“In this regard, we have put up an announcement calling on members of the public to submit memorandum and meet us at designated venues without any discrimination. So, it is an open invitation to all Nigerians to attend and make their views and voices to count.

Most of these were on front page. I carried some of these stories. Some of these initiatives actually failed like devolution of power and tenure system. They could come back to some of them though.

Regional is better. A lot of these 36 states are not viable on their own.

Derivation should be a 70% to the state and 30% to run the government.

Each region can elect a leader who can sit on a council with other regional leaders.

We can share one army with equal representation from all regions.

Independent candidacy can be encouraged but let it be on a regional level to represent each region on a council. Regions will pay the representatives expenses and not the country.

Legislative should be handled on the regional level. All regions should have their own laws which are binding.

Only thing council votes on is wars, resolving conflicts, economic strategy, borders. These are the only policies a federal government should be concerned with and fund. An army, immigration service and a border force. 30% revenue is enough for that. At the maximum 40%.

Nationalist? Is that your new tag for people you are able bring to your side of things.

A child from Imo scores 100 in entrance exam and another in Jigawa scores 20 but gets chosen ahead of the Imo child. What is patrotic or nationalist about that crap? I am proud not to be a nationalist in such a nation.
