If a state can sign such deal, then the federal government has not been doing the right thing. The federal government can build more stable refinery in the country.

Don't you think it's time for the states to start taking some responsibilities.

With that idea, confederation will quickly set in. If the states take up FGN responsibility What then is the essence of a central government. I concur with you but the FGN will not allow it because they are afraid to grant/practice confederation.

Spot on.

However, it'd do the nation a big favor if a balance can be found
