The Presidency on Sunday night tackled those individuals calling for the restructuring of Nigeria, saying that President Buhari’s administration will not “succumb to threats and undue pressure” being mounted by proponents of restructuring.
There has been renewed call for restructuring of Nigeria’s political and economic equation in the days leading to the 60th Independence day celebration.
Many ethnic groups have expressed dissatisfaction over the present structure of Nigeria, saying that it only favours a particular segment of the country at the expense of others.
In a statement made by the spokesman of the President, Garba Shehu, the Presidency said, “The Presidency responds to the recurring threats to the corporate existence of the country with factions giving specific timelines for the President to to do one thing or another or else, in their language, “the nation will break up.”
“This is to warn that such unpatriotic outbursts are both unhelpful and unwarranted as this government will not succumb to threats and take any decision out of pressure at a time when the nation’s full attention is needed to deal with the security challenges facing it at a time of the Covid-19 health crisis.”
“Repeat: this administration will not take any decision against the the interests of 200 million Nigerians, who are the President’s first responsibility under the constitution, out of fear or threats especially in this hour of health crisis.”
“The President as an elected leader under this constitution will continue to work with patriotic Nigerians, through and in line with the Parliamentary processes to finding solutions to structural and other impediments to the growth and wellbeing of the nation and its people.”
