The presidency has blamed the growing clamour for the restructuring of the Nigerian federation on those opposed to the Muhammadu Buhari administration, particularly the People’s Democratic Party -PDP, despite the fact that the ruling All Progressives Congress -APC is not antagonistic to restructuring.
The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina made this known while speaking on the theme, “Disintegration or Restructuring,” at the 8th Annual Lecture series of a civil society group, in Abuja.
Adesina, who said restructuring has always been part of Nigeria’s political and historical evolution, noted that the recent spate of agitations from various quarters was being instigated by the opposition.
In particular, he blamed the opposition PDP for prompting the calls for restructuring, adding that the federal government was not opposed to the restructuring of the country, but will not allow anything that will lead to its disintegration.
