Governor Kayode Fayemi and Governor Nasir El-Rufai advocate for devolution of powers to states


As Nigerians continue to recommend ways to build a united country, Governor Kayode Fayemi of Ekiti State has stressed the need to actualize the principle of devolution of powers and resources to the federating units.

He is advocating a revenue-sharing formula that is in favour of the states especially given the argument to devolve more responsibilities to the sub-nationals.

He made the submissions at the weekend, during a lecture he delivered at the 50th anniversary of Arewa House in Kaduna State.

Also speaking on the matter, the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai said the APC committee on Federalism recommended that the federation be rebalanced with more powers and responsibilities devolved to the states.

The event had in attendance, eminent personalities including the former Vice President, Namadi Sambo, the Sultan of Sokoto, Sa’ad Abubakar (II), among others.
