Calls For Restructuring In Nigeria
Nyesom Wike has been berated by his predecessor, minister of transport Rotimi Amaechi, over the Rivers state governor's statement on call for restructuring.
Governors from the south-south region have tabled a five-point demand before President Buhari. This includes restructuring and establishment of state police.
Rivers state governor, Nyesom Wike on Thursday, November 26, advised President Muhammadu Buhari to listen to the demands of the people or set Nigeria on fire.
Northern elders have distanced themselves from the statement attributed to Governor El-Rufai that selfish northern leaders are not in support of restructuring.
Governor Nasir El-Rufai said that the committee that produced the draft bill on restructuring had to step it down to prevent the bill from being politicised.
Afenifere in a communiqué urged the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to review the report of Governor Nasir El-Rufai/Adetumbi committee on restructuring.
