FORMER Nigerian Vice President Atiku Abubakar said he would relinquish more power to states if elected president next year.

Abubakar, who said this at a conference in London  opined that the current revenue-sharing formula doesn’t give enough to states to invest and be held accountable by their residents.

“The federal government is being accused of everything even when it’s not supposed to be its area of responsibility.

“I want to be able to resolve that so citizens can hold their local leaders accountable for maladministration.”

Atiku, a member of the main opposition People’s Democratic Party (PDP), announced his intention to vie for the leadership of Africa’s biggest oil producer in March, setting himself up as a candidate against President Muhammadu Buhari, who has also declared to seek a second term.
