Primate of the Church of the Lord (Aladura) Worldwide, His Eminence, Most Rev. Rufus Ositelu, has called on Nigerians to fight for true federalism in the country for democracy to thrive, saying it will enable each federating state to develop at its own pace.
Ositelu spoke while addressing journalists ahead of the church’s forth-coming annual Mount Tabieorar convention scheduled for August 22 at Holy Mount Tabieorar, Ogere Remo, Ogun State with the theme: “Supernatural Success” said adopting fiscal federalism would move the nation forward.
He said the country started with fiscal federalism in the first republic as contained in the Richards Constitution of 1946 and the Lytelton Constitution of 1954, adding that the regionalism operated then brought about healthy competition among the regions and also promoted good relationship between the centre and the regions.
