DO YOU BELIEVE NIGERIA NEEDS RESTRUCTURING ? YES! WE DO !
Should the Yoruba ethnic nationality be perpetually held back to wallow in an unfamiliar backwaters?
Shouldn't the voice of over 40 million Yorubas count and be reckoned with in Nigeria? Why are we now trailing rather than fiercely leading the pack?
The FGN has over the years failed in virtually all aspects of her responsibilities. There is massive infrastructural decay all over the country. The economy is prostrate and is begging for a dynamic attention while the quality of governance is abysmally poor and unstable. The much-talked about fight against corruption has not yielded probity and accountability in all facets of our life. A massive abuse of equity, justice and fairness in federal appointments has created a huge lopsidedness in favour of a section of the country thereby making other sections vassal States. The Military-induced 1999 Constitution over centralized powers at the centre to the undue disadvantage of the States.
Sons and Daughters of yoruba land, this is a call to stand up and be counted. We must shake away once and for all the shackles of oppression, feudalism and local neo-colonialism .
Our federation, our unity and our determination to stay together can no longer be taken for granted but rather be renegotiated through critical restructuring . Significant devolution of power from the central to the States is key. Fiscal federalism must be ingrained into our new federation. Principle of derivation as we had in the First Republic and explored and exploited by the likes of our Political Father Obafemi Awolowo to create politics of competitive modernization that made Western Rigion First Amongst Equals must be brought back. Issues like education,health, tax and taxation,police, transportation, driver's license , electricity are key to sub-regional economic development of the country.
The referendum for the restructuring of Nigeria is not a request for a break-up but it's an overdue demand to restructure Nigerian Federation along the line of equity, justice, fairness, probity, accountability and good governance
