Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State lent his voice to the call for a restructured Nigeria.
According to DailyPostNG, the governor said in order to ensure equitable distribution of resources, Nigeria needs to be restructured.
Speaking on Saturday while delivering a public lecture to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Arewa House in Kaduna,
El-Rufai cited the 2018 recommendations of the All Progressives Congress (APC) committee on restructuring and noted that there was a need to reorganize the country’s constitutional framework, in order to give states more control over certain resources.
In his words, it will “empower state governments to cease passing the buck to the president and the federal government.”
“I, therefore, call on our federal legislators and the National Assembly ad hoc committee on constitutional review to take advantage of our report and initiate the constitutional and legislative amendments in either a piece-meal or comprehensive manner without further delay.
“We, therefore, have no excuse not to seize this moment and do the heavy lifting for our country and our people.
“It is in our hands to make the structures, laws, and constitutional arrangements in our country conducive to modern governance that will ensure our nation thrives in the 21st century,” El-Rufai said.
