TitleFiscal Federalism in Nigeria: Addressing Issues of Resource Control
AuthorNenyiaba Charles I
AbstractThis paper examined fiscal federalism and resource control in Nigeria with a view to resolving the ethnic tension in the country. Data used in the study were obtained from Nigerian government institutions, moving averages, student t-test and Pearson correlation coefficient were the statistical tools deployed for the study. The paper revealed that concentration of resources in the hands of the central government resulted in sub-optimum economic growth and that there was no significant difference between revenue allocated to oil and non-oil producing states of the country during the period under study hence there was no impetus on the later to look elsewhere for revenue.
