Federal Government Explains Why State Governments Are Not Self-Sufficient.

Federal Government has explained the reason why some state governments have remained dependent and not self-sufficient.

According to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, this was because they greatly depend on federal allocation and if this was stopped, the states would be able to pull their weight.

Osinbajo said there was a fundamental link between national security and economic security and it was the responsibility of government to create social and economic opportunities and an enabling environment for citizens to thrive.

He said this in Abuja during a lecture titled, ‘Economic Dimension of National Security: The Nigerian Experience,’ organised for participants of Course twenty-eight of the National Defence College, saying there was a need to overhaul the national youth service scheme to better serve the nation’s needs.
