‘Don’t force restructuring on Nigeria’

 

‘Don’t force restructuring on Nigeria’

Immediate past Secretary-General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Anthony Sani has stated that unelected elite calling for the restructuring of Nigeria cannot undemocratically force their preference on the country.


The former ACF secretary said those calling for restructuring should include such in their party’s manifesto and use it to canvass for electoral votes.


Sani in a statement in Kaduna on Monday, also justified President Buhari’s comparison of Nigeria’s fuel price with Saudi Arabia, saying the removal of fuel and electricity subsidies was in reaction to the economic realities.


“I do not see the wisdom of calls on Mr President to restructure the country, considering those who wish the country restructured are at liberty to include same in their party’s manifesto and use it to canvass for votes.


“More so, that the term restructuring means different things to different groups.


“That is how democracy works. It is not for some unelected elites to foist their preferences on the rest of the country undemocratically.


“I also find it difficult to understand why some Nigerians are peeved with President Buhari for comparing fuel prices with those charged by other oil-producing countries. To them, there is no basis for such comparison, considering the variegated socio-economic status of the countries.


“To the best of my understanding of the president’s broadcast, he only wants the nation to know that the collapse of oil price and the challenges posed by coronavirus have combined to make it impossible for the administration to continue to subsidise the energy and power sectors and still address other concerns of insecurity, health, education, agriculture and other infrastructural deficit.
