Abstract
This is a detailed analysis of the structure configuration of Nigeria’s federalism in areas of revenue allocation, religious intolerance, national integration, conflict resolution in the face of recent realities, and more importantly, equitable developmental balancing of the amalgamated component units that make up Nigeria in terms of state creation for the region(s) requiring balancing through state creation. This will, no doubt, serve as a means to putting an end to secessionist drive and regional struggle for resource control. These challenges have been identified as a huge clog in the wheel of development and peaceful coexistence of the federation. The paper therefore is a timely revaluation of the structural foundation of Nigerian federalism, with distinguishing effort to present a set of workable solution contrasted from the laid down functions and identified challenges in the structure of Nigeria’s federalism.
