Whither Nigerian Federalism? Federal Arrangements as Conflict Management Devices
Federalism is accepted by many as a panacea to accommodate diversity and manage conflicts especially in pluralistic societies. It is therefore not surprising that conflict management capacity of Nigerian federal system has been long studied within the federalism literature with most of those studies concentrating on a particular conflict management mechanism of Nigerian federalism. This study argues, amongst other things that, Nigerian policy-makers have adopted three inter-related (federal) conflict management strategies to deal with the intransigent ethno-religious and ethno-regional conflicts prevalent in Nigerian society. Being complementary in their nature, the strategies of proliferation of component units, application of federal character principle and revising revenue-allocation formulae along with its derivation principle mutually reinforced each other. However, this study will reveal that Nigerian federalism is flawed in dealing with those conflicts having their roots in the colonial era.
