Restructuring

We commit to undertaking a Constitutional Review Initiative and hold a referendum to resolve the question of restructuring.  Restructuring will energise Nigeria’s federating units, strengthen states and empower each to flourish at its own pace and unlock the value of their own resources by themselves. Provision will be made for state and local government level policing and law enforcement. With more power must come greater responsibility. The federating units – the states – must demonstrate viability. As more power is devolved to the states and local government levels, their responsibilities and accountability to the Nigerian people must also increase. Our restructuring plans will call for states to balance their budgets, prioritise education and healthcare, and maintain sustainable fiscal and tax policies.
