While reiterating his stand on restructuring as panacea to Nigeria’s many problems, the former governor said “the major thing that can give birth to the Nigeria of our dream is a credible electoral system”.
He admonished the National Assembly and President Muhammadu Buhari to do the needful in ensuring that the amended electoral act becomes a reality.
He called on Nigerians irrespective of their party affiliation to come together in the fight to keep the country United, while advocating for the geographical restructuring of the country to ensure equity, justice and promote togetherness.
