Below is the kite being flown by the Federal Government on Restructuring

 Sokoto State - Sokoto
 Kebbi State - Birnin Kebbi
 Kaduna State - Kaduna
 Katsina State - Katsina
 Kano State - Kano
 Jigawa State - Dutse
 Zamfara State - Gusua
 Each state will be responsible for creating and funding its local governments as it deems fit. Local governments will be funded internally by the charging of a local tax, which will be augmented by a state grant representing no more than 10% of TV
 Over a 35 year period, we gradually migrate back to the 1957/58 revenue sharing formula agreed by our founding fathers at the Lancaster House Conferences in London under which the federating units will control all the resources within their domains and remit 50% to the centre
 Our federating units will keep 50% of all the revenue that they generate, put a further 20% into a central pot called the Excess Federation Account to which everyone can have access as the need arises, 10% will go into a geo-political zone account and the remaining 20% will go to into the Federation Account used to run the federal government
 With regards to all other resources, we shall move towards this immediately but in the case of oil and gas, the move will have to be gradual due to how dependent we have become on these two resources. A gradual migration shall take place over the next 35 years in this manner: 2000 - 13%, 2021 - 18%, 2023 - 20%, 2025 - 25%, 2030 - 30%, 2035 - 35%, 2040 - 40%, 2045 - 45%, 2050 - 50%
 Every one of our 42 states will be set a target of generating at least $2bn in export revenue. Any state government that attracts inward investment to the tune of $1bn, will get a corresponding grant from the federal government
 Any state that fails to generate as much revenue as it spends for two consecutive years as from 2020, will be subject to an immediate declaration of a state of emergency. It shall be administered centrally by the federal government until its books are balanced
 Every state must seek to generate at least 30% of its internal revenue from manufacturing and services, with a migration away from primary products to value added production
 Every state is free to create more local governments provided they meet the necessary criteria which includes holding a referendum and the fact that the local government area is self-sustaining. To be recognised as a local government area, basic facilities that must exist within the domain include 20 primary schools, five secondary schools, a local government headquarters, at least one vocational training college and at least one public health centre
 All local and state governments will as a matter of course award supply contracts to companies that manufacture products within Nigeria. Only as a last resort will companies that manufacture products abroad be granted government contracts.
What your take on this

May be in your dream.
When we need to shrink the states we have in Nigeria and merge them together
|Re: Nigeria To Create New States by orisa37: 7:40pm On Mar 06|
The existing 36 are Constitutional and enough meanwhile.
The States will redivide themselves when they know better that they're solely responsible socially economically and politically for their Development, expansion and Progress as situations demand. Two or more of them may merge as they please and as their economic parameters dictate.
The FG should stop poke nosing into State Affairs and be content with only 10% contribution from each State generated Revenue. The RESPONSIBILITIES of the FG should be limited to Foreign Affairs,, Military and negotiating, signing and sealing TREATIES for NIGERIA.
Parastatals, Federal Government Companies and Statutory Organizations will run on commercial basis and share their Fortunes for the 36 CONSTITUTIONAL STATES.
|Re: Nigeria To Create New States by orisa37: 7:48pm On Mar 06|
All we want is APREC-AUTONOMOUS POLICING RESOURCING AND ELECTIONEERING CONTROL FOR OUR 36 CONSTITUTIONAL STATES NOW AND LIMIT FEDERAL GOVERNMENT TO FOREIGN AFFAIRS MILITARY AND TREATIES SEALING ONLY. State creation is divide and rule. And that will be handled by State Governments after APREC.
