Revenue Allocation for a Stable Democracy in Nigeria: Options and Challenges


About The Book:

Revenue Allocation for a Stable Democracy in Nigeria: Options and –
Challenges, discusses the subject of revenue allocation in Nigeria.
The country’s political and macroeconomic development is carefully examined for a better understanding of the intricacies of the revenue collection and allocation question.
A critical perusal of the constitutional responsibilities of various tiers of
government reveals a lopsided revenue allocation formula. This becomes more revealing when the expenditure profile of government is juxtaposed on the revenue. This book carefully and painstakingly examines the various options available to Nigeria regarding an equitable revenue allocation as she seeks to attain a stable democracy after several years of military rule.
