The disparity between the North and South in revenue sharing based on revenue genearion has been condemned by Niger Delta activist Mrs Annkio Briggs.
This is her analysis
"North Central receives 20%
North East receives. 16%
North West receives. 21%
Every month the 19 Northern states receive a minimum of 57% of 100% revenue to which they CONTRIBUTE 0.00%.
South West Receives. 16%
South East. Receives. 11.00%
South South Receives. 15.00%
NIGERIA has 774 LGAS
Northern Nigeria have 19 States, the 19 States have 419 LGAS
Southern Nigeria has been 17 states the 17 states have 355 LGAS
Working with the data from the office of the Accountant General as published by the Ministry of Finance (2013 April) the 355 LGAS of the 17 southern states recieve 45.1% of what they contribute a 100% of.
The 419 LGAS of the 19 Northern states receive 54.9% of what they contribute 0.00% of.
No grammar will take away the fact that l am talking of equity and justice. The South of Nigeria particularly the Niger Delta has over loved the North, and they don't appreciate it. We must now love our selves, our children and their future and region 200%.
Some Niger Delta people may think it is politically correct to continue to give to a system and people that will never give to us, and even consider us fools for giving.
I refuse to be politically correct, if it means sacrificing Niger Delta.
How dare someone who brings nothing and takes more than me who brings 100% ask me what l am doing with the little that he did not steal."
