Jigawa rejects creation of additional states in Nigeria

Jigawa State government has rejected the calls for the creation of additional states in Nigeria. The state made its stand at the North West Zonal Public Hearing on True Federalism, held at the Coronation Hall, Kano State Government House.
It said push for the creation of additional states made no sense when most of the existing states were not viable.

Secretary to the State Government, Alhaji Adamu Abdulkadiri Fanini, who represented the governor supported the idea of independent candidacy in the political process and state police.

He said, “it was well known that most state governments were providing huge support to the police in the area of equipment and logistics.”‎

Jigawa also made a strong case for the devolution of the functions of the Federal Government in the area of agriculture, education, road construction and health while asking for increased allocation to states and local governments.
