  Gbajabiamila charges RMAFC to conduct a fair and just review of revenue allocation.

Honourable Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives, has charged the Revenue Mobilization Allocation and Fiscal Commission (RMAFC) with ensuring a fair, just, and equitable review of revenue allocation in the country.
 
The Speaker stated that in its attempt to review the country’s revenue allocation, which was last done nearly 30 years ago, the commission should ensure that all stakeholders are brought along and that all necessary steps are taken so that the final report cannot be faulted.
 
Gbajabiamila, who hosted the commission’s management, led by its chairman, Engr. Elias Mbam far, for a courtesy call on the House leadership on Tuesday at the National Assembly, said current realities should necessitate a review of revenue allocation.
 
“I charge you with conducting your review objectively. You should conduct extensive research to ensure that your report is error-free. I’m glad you mentioned holding public hearings. It’s a good idea to solicit feedback from others.
 
You should work on the principles of justice, equity, and fairness, said Gbajabiamila, adding that Nigeria is a unique country, necessitating a thorough and diligent review.
 
Earlier, Engr Mbam informed the House leadership that the visit was to seek the House’s support, advice, and guidance on the commission’s planned review of revenue allocation.
 
There are new concerns that did not exist previously. As a result, the allocation must be reviewed to ensure that what each tier of government receives is in line with its current responsibilities:
 
Engr. Mbam stated that as part of the review plans, the commission has conducted extensive consultations across the country, including visits to past presidents, the Nigerian Governors Forum, the judiciary, the Association of Local Governments of Nigeria (ALGON), and engagements with the media and civil society organizations, among others.
 
Engr. Mbam thanked the Speaker for agreeing to hear them on such short notice, saying that if all Nigerians worked like this, we would all be better off:
