The National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, and Leader of the pan Yoruba Socio-Political Organisation, Afenifere, Senator Femi Okurounmu, have warned that if the North remains resistant to restructuring of Nigeria, they will force it on them, or break the country into two.
Recall, that Tinubu and other eminent Nigerians, have been calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to restructure the country.
Okurounmu, gave the warning while reacting to a statement credited to the Buhari, through the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, saying Nigeria cannot be restructured now, until the Constitution is amended.
Speaking with Okurounmu, he said: “I am not surprised by the statement of the AGF, that the North will not support restructuring. The North does not want the status quo to change.
“They have always seen themselves as the only people fit to rule Nigeria. Anyway, we did not expect them to say otherwise; we must now force them.
“The people supporting restructuring are in the majority; hence, the minority cannot override us. And if they don’t want, we can then break Nigeria into two.
“They can go their own, and we go on our way. That is the solution. We should stop asking them, but force it on them, whether they want it or not.”
