1. Former President Olusegun Obasanjo in an interview with Channels Television, explained why he is against those who are advocating for Nigeria’s restructuring. Noting that they should instead advocate for a better management of the country’s resources. “I have spoken to six different people who talk about restructuring and the six of them gave me different points of view. The other day, some people came to me and what they were talking about didn’t make sense.” “My own restructuring is what I have said; we have to restructure our mentality. We have to restructure our minds. We have to restructure our understanding of Nigeria. What country do we want? And if we decide on what kind of country we want, how do we get that country? We need to get every Nigerian to have the feeling that they have a stake in the country?”
