Human Rights Report: True Federalism Before 1966: National Confab Should Adopt It
Before 1966, when the military struck, the sharing formula was
(1) 50% to Region (Reserved)
(2) Remaining 50% share between the Region and the Federal Government
So, the sharing formula was really:
(1) 75% to the Region
(2) 25% to the Center (Federal Government)
There is nothing like True Federalism because that would connote false or untrue federalism. It is either a country is operating Federalism or Not. Putting true, means there is untrue. If there is untrue, then it is false.
What Nigerian Government should do is to use this National Conference to correct Nigeria if they want Nigeria one. The sharing formula should trail the sharing before 1966:
(1) 50% of the Local Government
(2) 30% of the state
(3) 20% to the Center
This should be at the point of Generation so that the Center cannot collect it before Distributing to the States and Local Governments.
