Background of Study
Since the beginning of Democracy to Nigeria in May 1991, the deteriorating internal security situation has been a source of growing concern to the Nigeria government, it’s harmless citizens and the international community in just a decade, criminal violence in form of kidnapping militancy, religious crises and armed robbery has assumed frightening dimensions. Of particular concern is the increasing incidence of religious violence which threatens public order human security and Nigerian federalism.
Federalism is a formidable, mechanism for managing plural societies, however religious crises have tended to impact the effectiveness of the federalist logic in Nigeria with different plans by the government towards sustenance the nation, little or no result seems to be forthcoming because Nigeria is continuously weighed down by religious crisis/burdens.
Federalism is also a system of government where power is shared between the central government and the component units, it is used as a mechanism in ensuring unity in plural states, federalism is cursor a system of governments in which political authority is divided between a national or federal government and its political sub-division. In this system, national and state government each have defined powers denied both. Federalism is a covenant between constituents’ part of a country as to how, the arrangements of power and resources are to be distributed between the levels of government, it is a system that accommodates and manages diversity.
Nigeria federalism dates back to the colonial era of her existence. By 1951, it was thought of by the colonial masters that the Nigeria State should adopt the system of federalism in order to curb the issue of division in a country like Nigeria that is diverse in culture and ethnicity.
Despite federalism been the framework or mechanism in ensuring unity in diversity, there are still problems faced by the Nigeria federal stated (Badmus, 1987). These problems includes the activities of social cultural or ethnic groups such as Niger Delta militant group, the movement for the actualization of the sovereign state of Biafra (Massob) among others, which was a fallout of Nigeria federalism, second fallout is the ongoing Boko Haram menace which is threatening the unity of Nigeria.
Perhaps the greatest challenges to modern federalism in the 21st century is the effective response on all levels of government to a domestic attract or natural disaster, and also the ability of government to respond effectively towards crises in Nigeria and also ways to manage crises.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
The desire of every federal state is to ensure unity across the nation, because it seeks to promote peace and unity in diversity which is a solution to seemingly differences and contestation among people. However while federalism benefits most western countries the reverse is the case for Nigeria considering the high level of political instability, ethnic crises and ethno-religious crises amongst others. The reason is not farfetched Nigeria is operating a federal system in an awkward manner and this has made frictions and clashes possible which are currently posing a threat to her political development. Nigeria state has over the years been faced by so many problems and has become a conflict ridden terrain which kills innocent citizens. The most recent of these problems is the Boko Haram which stands as a big threat to the co-operate existence of the Nigeria federal state.
