Former president of Nigeria Olusegun Obasanjo has explained why he is against calls for the restructuring of Nigeria.
According to NAIJ.com, Obasanjo, who said this in a television interview said Nigerians should rather advocate for a better management of the country’s resources. Obasanjo said instead of fighting for restructuring, people should be concerned about inclusiveness and the restructuring of their minds.
”I have spoken to six different people who talk about restructuring and the six of them gave me different points of view. The other day, some people came to me and what they were talking about didn’t make sense
”So, what are we talking about? We have a country that God has endowed; the management of that endowment is what we have to work on. ”All hands must be on deck. Some of the people clamouring for restructuring are nostalgic about the country’s independence; that’s their restructuring and some of them are nostalgic about post-independence. Some of them are nostalgic about their tribes, and that’s their restructuring. I cannot be part of that”.
The former president also said: “My own restructuring is what I have said: we have to restructure our mentality. We have to restructure our minds”.
