Tambuwal seeks new revenue sharing formula

Governor Aminu Tambuwal of Sokoto state has canvassed for an urgent review of the formula for sharing revenue in the Federation Account by the Federal, State and Local governments.

Tambuwal, the immediate past Speaker of the House of Reps, wants the proposed sharing formula he is seeking to raise the allocation of the state and local governments from the Federation Account.

The governor making the call while receiving a group at the government house in Sokoto, said it was wrong for the State and Local Governments which are close to the grassroots, to be receiving lesser revenue than the Federal Government.

He also spoke on the agitation for the restructuring of the country, saying he prefers fiscal restructuring instead of geographical restructuring.
