    With havin so much written content do you
    ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement?
    My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any techniques
    to help stop content from being stolen? I’d truly appreciate it.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being
    off-topic but I had to ask!

Lagos, Rivers, Osun, Kaduna, Imo top list of Highly Indebted States Lagos, Rivers, Osun, Kaduna, Imo top list of Highly Indebted States Google map for Nigeria 1

Lagos, Rivers, Osun, Kaduna, Imo top list of Highly Indebted States Lagos, Rivers, Osun, Kaduna, Imo top list of Highly Indebted States Google map for Nigeria 300x187

 

Lagos State, South West is number one among the Highly Indebted States in in both external and domestic debts, with N1.043 trillion in 2018, in a latest report by the Economic Confidential.
While the external debt stock of Lagos amounts to N513.514 billion, the local debt stock settled at N530.243 billion.
In a meticulous investigation by a team of Economic Confidential researchers on the Annual High Indebted States on External and Domestic Debts as of 2018, the amount owed by Lagos State represents about 20 per cent of the total debts owed by the 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, which is N5.376 trillion in 2018.
Among the front runners in the highly indebted states for the external debt stock are Edo, Kaduna, Cross River and Bauchi, with $276.25 million (N99.45 billion), $227.25 million (N81.81 billion), $188.77 million (N67.95 billion) and $133.93 million (N48.21 billion) respectively.
Investigations further revealed that among the first five highly indebted states in the local debt stock saw Lagos emerging tops with N530.243 billion, followed by Delta State with N228.805 billion, Rivers with N225.592 billion, Akwa Ibom State with N198.663 billion and Cross River with N167.955 billion.
The report further showed that outside Lagos State that is leading the pack on total external and domestic debts with N1.043 trillion, Rivers State is second with N253.772 billion, Delta comes to third position with N251.589 billion, followed by Cross River in the fourth position with N235.914 billion and the fifth position was grabbed by Akwa Ibom with N215.099 billion.
The investigation also brought to the fore that five states made the list of least indebted states in the external debt stock with Taraba State having $21.611 million (N7.780 billion),  followed by Borno with $21.618 million (N7.782 billion), and Yobe State with $27.486 million (N9.895 billion), all in North Eastern Nigeria.
The remaining two states of Plateau and Kogi from North Central Nigeria have external debt stock of $28.874 million (N10.394 billion) and $31.584 million (N11.370 billion) respectively.
Of the 36 states of the federation, five states account for the lowest in both domestic and external debts.
They are: Yobe, Jigawa, Sokoto, Katsina and Niger States.
Yobe State has a total of N37.667 billion, Jigawa N46.586 billion, Sokoto with N52.723 billion, while Katsina and Niger States have N53.220 billion and N63.915 billion respectively.
Though the Federal Capital Territory is not rated among the 36 states of the federation, its external debt profile for 2018 is $31.848 million (N11.465 billion), while the domestic debt is N164.245 billion, bringing a total of its external and domestic debts to N175.710 billion.
The report is coming at a time when several states in the country are backward in terms of internally generated revenue to execute projects that would touch lives apart from the fact that most of these states rely heavily on handouts from the monthly federal allocations from the Federation Account Allocation Committee.
Recall that Economic Confidential recently published a report detailing each states’ revenue generation profile in comparison to their federal allocations and concluded that many states cannot survive without federation accounts, a development regarded as a misnomer in the current economic realities.
