Structure of The New Nigeria by Nwokedi Nworisara

The new Nigeria is becoming a real­ity already. What remains is for us to understand and con­sciously apply the basic pil­lars and make it our own.
The following are the pil­lars on which it rests:

It recognises that Nigeria is best when we can build a nation that preserves the peoples as they are made by God not change them to conform to the dictates of the nation. In other words the nation will exist to facilitate the lives of the people not the other way round.
That Federal Govern­ment will work to accen­tuate only the best of this collective union of peoples or units protected in their natural environment from unnatural change. To this end the Federal Govern­ment must be manage­ment efficient, outward looking to the comity of nations an best practices while the units( whether states or Region or zones) will be inward looking to preserve the cultures, envi­ronment, resources, of the units while retaining its non- tax outputs to further these goals.
That each peoples or group naturally already fits in as a useful link to­wards this natural progress as long as they can per­fect their best natures and work without hindrance which itself contributes to the greatest good of the nation. It is the duty of the nation to efficiently man­age the external interest of the units for a commensu­rate fee.
To this end Citizenship is organised in two levels. One is at the unit level the other is at the federal level. The Nigerian citizenship is merited not automatic. Like the merit awards, we have to state criteria for moving from the units citizenship to the full citi­zenship of Nigeria. At the federal level what qualifies you to vote and be voted for will be:
Education( Needed to understand and appreciate the constitution and the oath of office)
Competence in required fields of endeavor (Skills)
Accommodation in key urban areas where the fed­eral areas are set up.
Visa and legal agreement to abide by set regulations and rules, especially con­tained in the federal con­stitution.
The full citizen will not be ethnic or religious but just Nigerian.
The dress codes will be agreed upon to conform to efficient work ethics and not display culture or religion which will be deemphasized, while work ethics will also exclude any native dressing or religious practices during official hours.
To achieve these pillars, in this up -building we have to let each peoples or collective retain in their unique political structure their resources and work out how they would be taxed by the federal gov­ernment for services lead­ing to the establishment, maintenance and upgrad­ing of such resources in the meantime leading to complete take over by the unit concerned. Call it fed­eralism if you like but this is a uniquely Nigerian de­sign cumulating a research project by this author that kicked off in 1991.
