Ekiti - Ekiti State Governor Ayo Fayose has insisted that the only way forward for the country was restructuring, stressing that only this action could guarantee true federalism in Nigeria, Naij reports.
Fayose was reacting to the submission by Sokoto state governor, Amuni Tambuwal and his Ondo state counterpart, Olusegun Mimiko that the continuous calls by members of various groups for the restructuring of the country along regional lines as recommended by the 2014 National Conference was not the best way out.
Fayose in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, on Wednesday said: “We believe in restructuring that will bring about true federalism.”
“If we all are to have a sense of belonging, and if we should believe in this country called Nigeria, there must be restructuring to eliminate all fears being expressed and insecurity threatening the existence of this country".
“All the contentious issues need to be addressed under restructuring.”
The governor had last month, come out of support to those who are calling for the restructuring of Nigeria, while questioning the All Progressives Congress decision to backtrack on its initial calls for true federalism according to News24.
Fayose hailed the calls for restructuring by the Southwest APC, saying that mechanisms should now be put in place to enable these changes in the country.
