Nigeria’s Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo says without a restructuring of Nigeria’s federating unit, the country will stay insecure, unstable, non-progressive, and stagnated at the best or disintegrated at the worst.

The aforesaid President disclosed on the 2020 Annual Sobo Sowemimo virtual Lecture titled “COVID – 19 Pandemic and Nigeria Security Issues: the way forward in Abeokuta.

Obasanjo is remarked that the Federal Government is devastated with the spate of insecurity, thereby giving rise to agitation for restructuring crucial.

He condemned authorities at all levels of ineffectiveness, thereby called on Nigerians to initiate and promote campaigns akin to Safety Issues to All; No security, No Nigeria.

Obasanjo, nonetheless, called on the federal government to take initiative and champion actions that may contain governments and the ruled that may devolve security architecture, apparatus, arrangement, and responsibility in subsidiarity.

He stated the answer lies in women and men imbued with braveness, nationalism, patriotism, commitment, foresight, and love in critical mass, to spearhead the campaign for new Nigeria.

Talking on the post-COVID-19 era, he called for correct consideration to food availability and safety, employment, and economic diversification.

This is coming barely a week after the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu extended yet another call to Nigeria’s federal authority.

Kanu advised President Mohammadu Buhari’s led administration to organize a peaceful referendum to allow Biafrans to decide their stay in Nigeria.

The IPOB leader made the call during one of his evening broadcasts early in the week noting that Biafra restoration must be this year.

However, southern leaders, including Ohanaeze and Meddle Belt, in a joint suit, had demanded fifty billion from FG over Lopsidedappointments.
