Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has called for devolution of power between the Federal Government and 36 states in the country.
The governor made this call as one of the speakers at a programme called ‘Radio Now’s Urgent Conversation’ aired on Thursday on Channels Television.
He stated that state police and devolution of the judiciary is important to save Nigeria from the brink of collapse.
“I will dwell on three of the issues that I believe are critical to the immediate needs of the country to pull back from the brink.
“The first, it is imperative for Federal, state, and community policing. We do not have enough police. One centralised police for the country just has not worked.
“Secondly, we must amend the constitution and relevant laws to ensure control of oil and gas, mines, and minerals in the states that already have control over land under the land use Act with royalties and taxes payable to the Federal Government and the Federation Account
“Number three, we must rectify the anomaly of a Federation that has a more or less unitary judiciary,” the governor explained.
