A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, Anyi Iwuanyanwu, has warned that Nigeria would perish if not restructured.
The PDP chieftain alleged that the north has been beneficiaries of the injustice, imbalance, the iniquity, in the system, stressing that they were the ones that want to maintain the status quo.
He told Sun that this development had made the country to remain stagnant with no viable development.
Iwuanyanwu said, “But I tell them that nobody has moved forward, even then, in spite of the fact that they have been controlling the resources of the country centralised in Abuja, the headquarter of poverty in Nigeria is still the north, which shows that the system is also not still working for them.
“We want a situation where every components of this country begin to look inwards, generate revenue and use that revenue to develop themselves not somebody to go and get oil from Bayelsa, you bring it here for everybody. So people get lazy they are not doing anything. It is either we restructure or this country would perish.
“My prayer is that Buhari should not be the last president of Nigeria. South -South has spoken, the South-East has spoken, the South- West has spoken, the Middle Belt has spoken, even part of North -East like Atiku have said we should restructure.
“But a group of people mostly from the North-West are resisting change; you came to government and the mantra has changed, restructuring means change for those who said they don’t know what it means.”
