DESPITE sustained and uninterrupted civil rule in the nearly past two decades, the Nigerian state is essentially wobbling and even growing hollow. The ideals of the state expressed in its constitutional provisions are considerably constrained by institutions that should ordinarily facilitate its realisation. With the state increasingly rendered hollow, its institutional infrastructure is upended with a consequence of serious critical deficit in the regular function of processes outlined in the constitutional framework. A hollow state is characterised by institutional weakness and re-configuring its structural framework as agitators for restructuring have vociferously espoused cannot compensate for institutional inertia and dysfunction. In fact, only a strong state, with sufficient institutional integrity and credibility can guarantee the fragmentary structure of a federal framework.
