Afenifere regretted that the latest comment against restructuring came from Osinbajo, who is from the South-West, which had always made a strong point for the restructuring of Nigeria.
Osinbajo had said on Sunday according to News24 faulted the various calls for the restructuring of Nigeria, saying it will not make any difference.
According to a statement on Sunday by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, the Vice-President made his position known while answering questions from the audience after delivering the second foundation lecture of the Elizade University, Ilara-Mokin, Ondo State, titled “The future is here earlier than we thought.”
