A federal system represents a balance of power between the central and regional governments, especially in multi-ethnic societies. This articles relies on a historical institutional framework in order to examine the differences in the federal systems of Nigeria and Canada with regard to subnational independence and distribution of taxing powers between the levels of government in the federations.

The analysis indicates that the federal system of Nigeria is over-centralised and thus does not meet the standards of true federalism.
