Recently, there have been increased calls for Nigeria to be restructured.
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo recently said the federal government will soon address
the call for restructuring.
“We are looking at all contributions made by Nigerians across the country. Very
soon we will come out with policies to address the
call for restructuring of the country,” Osinbajo had said.
“It is in our interest as a nation to continue to dialogue for the unity and peace
of the country. Equity, fairness and justice can only be achieved under a peaceful
atmosphere. We must not do those things that will turn us against each other.”
