The Minister for Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi has said that he preferred to copy the kind of restructuring in Germany which provides the basic line.
According to him, any restructuring plan for Nigeria must include provisions to help financially weaker states to survive and perform basic responsibilities. That way, possible fears about the survival abilities of states will be eliminated.
“For me, I prefer to copy the kind of restructuring we saw in Germany, which provides the basic line.”
“If no state can raise up to N5million per month to pay their salaries, then all of us including the Federal Government will contribute money for that state.
“Which means, you can devolve power and revenue but if no state can raise that kind of money to sustain itself then both the Federal Government and all other states must come together to put money to enable that state to survive.
