*Jonathan Says Restructuring May Not Addresses Nigeria’s Challenges

Former President Goodluck Jonathan

Former president Goodluck Jonathan has said that the restructuring being agitated for in part of the country may not solve several challenges facing Nigeria

Nigerians, according to him, first need to restructure their mind, if they want the ongoing discussions on restructuring to move Nigeria forward

Jonathan, speaking on the contentious issue at the eighteenth daily trust dialogue in Abuja, says some of the challenges at the national level are replicated at the state, local government and community levels of the country

He says that Nigeria cannot restructure without solving issues which divided its citizens such as nepotism, ethnic, and religious differences and lack of patriotism

Also speaking at the forum, former chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission, Professor Attahitu Jega, says that the growing agitation for restructuring is being fuelled by bad governance at federal, state and local governments levels

Jega, however, calls for a consensus on the form that restructuring will be implemented

Chairman of Arewa consultative forum, Chief Audu Ogbeh in his contribution to the topic agrees that restructuring is absolutely needed, but says the shape it will take is subject of a debate He, however, ruled out the return of Nigeria to the regional system of 1960 with resource control
