Governors that have no drop of oil from their states dedicate most of their time giving public lectures and blabbing about oil, oil, oil.
You hardly, perhaps never, even hear the governors from the South-South talking about oil unlike the governors from no-drop-of-oil states. It is this unrivalled obsession for oil wealth that makes fiscal federalism unrealisable in Nigeria.
Let these governors obsessed with oil revenues start thinking creatively about how to harness the abundant natural resources from their states. Let this covetousness, laziness and excessive noise stop, please.
