Governor Tambuwal Calls For Review of Revenue Allocation Formula

The revenue allocation formula should be restructured to ensure federating units get more allocation than the centre, Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, has advocated.

“There’s urgent need to review the allocation formula in the country because doing so will strenghten the Nigerian federation and help to shed off some of the excess powers the Federal Government currently has,” the Governor said in Sokoto Wednesday while hosting various groups who paid him a sallah homage.

Tambuwal added that the states and local government areas deserve more allocation because they shoulder overwhelming responsibilities of the citizens of the country.

“The ugly trend should be reversed in favour of the federating units, to enable them meet the overwhelming demands of the people at grassroots level,” the governor added.

Tambuwal disagreed with those advocating the “geographical” restructuring of Nigeria, saying with good governance in place, all Nigerians will be made to have a sense of belonging.
