Nigeria should return to parliamentary system of government as inherited from the British after independence.  It could be fine tuned to meet present circumstances of six regions to correspond to current six geo-political zones we have in the country now.  Each region would have its own parliament headed by a Premier.  Each region would manage and control its natural resources, heath, education, transportation…manage its own internal security by formation of regional police.  Each region would also have its own army but the command can be centralized.

Then we can now form a true federation among all the six regions.  The regions would now delegate some functions to the federal center as they sees fit for thier region. The office of the Prime Minister of the federation for example, would  be rotational within the six regions.  In countries where similar system are practiced the term is usually 2 to 2.5 years.  Position of the head of the military also has to be rotated in similar manner.  This is the system of government adopted in Switzerland, Germany, Britain, and many other European countries and even in recently successful arabs nations (UAE for example) to forge democracy. Switzerland, recently was voted the most stable country politicaly, in the world. And everyone that has visited these countries would see that democracy is working and the countries are progressing. So, why can’t we face the truth and lunch a practicable system. Or is it because we are blacks?

Richard, I quite agree to this up to a limit, being that the parliamentary system will require a new learning curve, at the same time the bad ones will justify corruption in that we are still learning. We can have a federation of six zones plus limited autonomy for the constituent States, with options for mergers as states deem fit.
We all agree to one truth, we all would still prefer Nigeria as our Union of Soveireign States, founded on Justice, Equity, and Truth. Though we cannot do without each other, we down south will need the agricultural resources of the Northern Zones, the North needs our human resources,all other zones need the oil and gas from the Niger Delta, etc But there must be mutual respect for all citizens of Nigeria unlike the case now.
Remove impunity, Injustice, Corruption and exessive(Insane)greed and you would notice Nigeria growing into the comitee of Second World Countries naturally.
guys nigeria is messed up as far as am concerned
Yes, you are right Udom. To achieve the prosperity we are all yearning for, we must construct a solid foundation on which to build such a community. You can not start building a house for example without first design a solid structure on which the building is to stand. Our politicians are shying away from the fundamental problems of the presently so called Federal Republic of Nigeria, and they are doing so not because of ignorance and solely because of short sightedness and selfish immediate material gains. As long as Nigeria federation remains in the confused state as it is now, corrupt politicians will always have the day. There would be no developments, only chaos and masses will continue to suffer.

Emulating parliamentary system of govt. is another problem.i think Nigerians can introduce our own system that can woke perfectly without corrupt practices.
There is a saying «an intelligent man learn from his own mistake, while a wise man learn from mistakes of others». There has been in modern history of many countries doing political experiments with their own people. The result of communist experiment in Eastern Europe is still fresh in the mind of contemporary political observers. Well, I don't think it is reasonable trying to invent bicycle in the 21st century.samuel adjarho said:
