EDITORIAL: YES to restructuring and NO to war or secession

EDITORIAL: YES to restructuring and NO to war or secession

The three most popular words in the country right now are restructuring, Biafra and Secession. 

The call for restructuring followed recent activities of the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and various notices for Nigerians to quit parts of the country issued by different groups from the North, South-West and the Niger Delta.

Through the years, almost, if not, all the regions, nationalities and groups comprising the state have felt the nature of the Nigerian union has not served them well enough by taking their welfare and need for progress into account, leading to attitudes of alienation from and rebellion against the Nigerian state. 

Restructuring remains one of the promises made by the APC and President Buhari that they have refused to fulfill, AljazirahNigeria recalls.

Many Nigerians have opined that the Nigerian state and structure has not worked well. It has breed laziness and increased dependence on one natural resource to the detriment of the immense potentials which God has given Nigeria. 

It is upon this ground that AljazirahNigeria supports the call for restructuring of the country without breaking up.

AljazirahNigeria call on President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure the country on the principles of true Federalism.

Nigerians are tired of the persistent deficiencies, and problems with the structure the Nigerian federation has taken since independence.

President Buhari should embark on a process of economic and political restructuring of Nigerian in the interest of the survival of Nigeria, and its people. 

Restructuring would neutralize the centrifugal forces, mute the cries of marginalization and make every Nigerian happy and proud. It would make the federation “less centralised, less suffocating and less dictatorial in the affairs of our country’s constituent units and localities.’’

The restructuring envisaged would be one that empowers people at different levels to develop according to their human and material resources and at their own pace. This will very likely unleash the energies and creativity of the people in giving expression to requirements for truer diversification of the national economy.

We at AljazirahNigeria agree that there is need to change many political, administrative or economic structures in Nigeria, but it must be done with open mind, justice and equity.
