El-Rufai’s committee submits report on restructuring, makes recommendation


The committee set up by the All Progressives Congress, APC to look into the issue of restructuring has submitted its reports.

The Governor Nasir El Rufai-led committee on True Federalism submitted its report to the National Working Committee of the APC, on Thursday.

The committee in its reports called for more devolution of powers to the states.

The committee urged that the police and prisons be moved from the exclusive to the concurrent list.

According to the report, the state government would be allowed to establish state police to handle certain crimes as well as state prisons.

The committee equally recommended independent candidacy but with a clause that individuals who intend to stand for elections must not have been a member of any political party at least six months to the elections in which they intend to contest.

On local government autonomy, the committee said since “one size does not fit all,” the states should be allowed to legislate for local governments, including creating more councils.
