Restructure your states before calling for restructuring at federal level – Senate President, Ahmad Lawan slams Southern Governors

Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has lashed out at Southern Governors over their restructuring demand after their meeting in Asaba, Delta state last week.

Lawan who faulted the demand, accused the governors of retreating to regionalism to address a national issue that should be collectively decided upon.

He also asked the various state Governors to restructure their states before asking for restructuring at the federal level.

The Senate President said;

“I believe that, as leaders, especially those of us who are elected, should not be at the forefront of calling for this kind of thing because, even if you are a governor, you are supposed to be working hard in your state to ensure that this restructuring you are calling for at the federal level, you have done it in your state as well.

“What you may accuse the Federal Government of, whatever it is, you may also be accused of the same thing in your state. So, we are supposed to ensure that we have a complete and total way of ensuring that our systems at the federal, state and even local government levels work for the people.

“We should avoid regionalism. We are all leaders and we are in this together. The solutions to our challenges must come from us regardless of what level of government we are, whether at the federal, state or the local government level. I believe that Nigeria is going to come out of these challenges stronger.

“I also want to take this opportunity to say that we have diminished the local government system. I think we can attribute the security issues to the absence of a functional local government system.

“I think the time has come for us to take up the challenge and ensure that the local government system functions. This is as we look for ways to curb the security challenge. We must never neglect the local government system. We must go back to our local government system to ensure they are autonomous and functional”
