Restructuring will divide Nigeria – Sani
Former Secretary-General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Mr. Anthony Sani says restructuring will further polarise Nigeria economically if not well managed.
He said that those advocating for restructuring were acting like Nigeria was not one united nation but different entities.
According to Sani, restructuring will further compound the challenges of inequality in the country.
“Those who insist on restructuring that will allow sections of the country to develop at their own pace are those who ignore the trite that reduction of inequality that comes with balanced development and good governance is not only good economics, but also good politics. Nigeria cannot afford to be a nation where some sections are on the cutting edge while others are on the knife edge of survival.
“Since the term restructuring means different things to different groups of people, the democratic way of going round the problems is for political parties which seek to restructure the country to articulate their versions of restructuring in their respective party manifestos which they can use to enlighten the people for informed judgement during elections,” The Sun quoted Sani to have said.
