Nation building ideas — Nigeria

I like the idea of proportional representation, sounds like a fair way to distribute power.

To my mind though, the elephant in the china shop is religion. when you talk of separating religion from the state, what’s the strategy for handling sharia, especially against the backdrop of the absence of religion from state in Islamic world view.

Unless we find a workaround for this issue, federalism may deliver fiscal discipline, but whats to stop if from also delivering a ‘sultanate’ in substantial parts of northern Nigeria?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
