Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu, has asked the Federal Government to devolve power to the states to enable them work effectively.

 

Akeredolu made this call on Tuesday while receiving officials of the National Senior Secondary Education Commission, who visited the state for an education stakeholders’ summit.

 

Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Ondo State, Richard Olatunde, made this known on Wednesday in a statement titled, ‘Gov Akeredolu to FG: Devolve power to states, make them effective.’

 

According to the Governor, the issue of restructuring in the country can be linked to the devolution of power to the states.

 

He added that the “over-centralisation” of power by the FG has turned Nigeria into a unitary nation.

 

The statement partly read, “Governor Akeredolu, who declared that he doesn’t believe in the disintegration of the country, said the fiscal policy and over-centralisation of power in the hands of the Federal Government has turned the country into a unitary nation.


“Lamenting that putting many items in the exclusive list has concentrated too many powers in the hands of the federal government, Arakunrin Akeredolu noted that the unity of the country is based on sustainable true federalism.

 

“He identified over centralisation of structures of governance as a major reason for the unending agitations for restructuring.

 

“Arakunrin Akeredolu, therefore, called for devolution of powers to enable the states function effectively as federating units within the federation.”
