State Govts Are Running Away From Responsibilities: Minister
Former Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka has expressed that Nigerian governors are shying away from responsibilities.
He expressed that governors have not fully utilized the powers allotted to them.
Chidoka stated this on Saturday at The Platform, a programme organized by The Covenant Nation.
“The powers of our states are guaranteed. So, the states have no business going to Abuja except to collect their allocations,” he explained.

“If they want to establish universities, they are at liberty. If they want to set up medical health centres and attract doctors from around the world, they are at liberty.
“What is holding them back is work avoidance. Our state governments are avoiding work and we the people have been deceived that the problem is in Abuja. No, the problem is not in Abuja. The problem is in our states.
The former minister stated that he is not against restructuring, however, he wants proponents to be clear on what should be restructured.
“Tell me what you (restructuring proponents) want removed from the exclusive list and brought to the concurrent list,” Chidoka asked.
