Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Nigeria’s former Vice President, on Wednesday declared that the citizens were yet to witness the change promised them by the All Progressives Congress-led administration.
Atiku spoke at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, in a lecture series organized by the Senior Staff Club of the University.
Addressing a large crowd made up of academics, students, politicians, Igbo leaders, among others, he stated that Nigeria had failed to realize her potentials as a result of refusal of the political leaders to restructure the country.
“Restructuring will help to bring the benefits of change we promised the people in the last election which we have not seen.
“We need restructuring in order to address the challenges that hold us back; these problems will remain unaddressed unless we restructure.
“Issue of restructuring is beyond resource control; there are more important issues. In my own vision, restructuring will not make some states richer and some poorer; it is a win-win situation for all the States. Nigeria will derive more revenue after restructuring”, he declared.
Those present at the event include former governors Chief Okwesiieze Nwodo, Obong Victor Atttah, Ohanaeze President, Nnia Nwodo, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, among others.
