The states of Kano and Lagos have asked the federal government for a special revenue allocation.

In a statement issued by spokesperson Abba Anwar on Tuesday, Kano Governor Abdullahi Ganduje made the demand, stating that both states had established a case for their proposal.

Mr Anwar claimed Ganduje revealed the knowledge to him when Lagos Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu paid him a condolence visit following the death of Sani Dangote, the brother of Dangote Group CEO Aliko Dangote.

“Given the population of Kano and Lagos, as well as other megacities’ commonalities, both states need 1% in the new revenue allocation system,” Mr Ganduje said.
