The House also urged the National Assembly to look again at the calls by citizens of the country for fiscal federalism and devolution of power.

Speaker of the House, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa, who presided over the plenary, noted that the country had enjoyed relative unity since Independence.

“I also want to urge the National Assembly to put more efforts on devolution of power and fiscal federalism so that Nigeria would be better than what it is right now,” Dr. Obasa said.
