Meanwhile, state governors in Nigeria have demanded a restructuring of how revenue in the federation account is shared between the federal government and the states.
The Governors want to take 42 percent of the revenue while the federal government retains 35 percent and 2.3 percent goes to the local governments.
This position was reiterated by the Ekiti State Governor, Kayode Fayemi who is also the Chairman of the Nigeria Governor’s Forum (NGF) in Abuja.
According to Fayemi, it is not the first time the Governors are making their minds known on how the revenue in the federation account is shared currently and how they want it to be shared.
