  11. Permanent solution to the Nigeria problem.
    1. Decentralised federation
    2. Each region keeps 80% of its revenues generated and 20% goes to the central government.
    3. Each state has its own police, power generation, judiciary system with a central supreme court ( with equal representation from each region)
    4. A national military with only sole purpose of defending against external aggression.
    5. Each region would control its own resources, develop at its own pace and the economy would naturally diversify.
    6. Armed robbery attack, fulani herdsmen killings would disappear overnight.
    7. Corruption would reduce drastically.

  14. They think creating jobs is just to write the names in ledger and file it. All our civil servants, how well are they enjoying the jobs and benefits? What are the jobs for? How will they grow the economy? Will these jobs create revenue enough to pay themselves? This billion is the first official loot after election. Bottom line will be 60,000 more jobs where workers will go unpaid. They should use the money to pay those they are owing first.
