Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa has said that the current problems in the country can be overcome if the federal government can restructure the minds of Nigerians by creating employment and sustainable food.
He made this statement when he gave a lecture titled, “Good Governance for Weather Creation and Sustainable Development: Experiences and Lessons” at the 2017 Alumni Lecture of the University of Ibadan.
The issues of restructuring are in many parts. You can see as at today, the discourse on restructuring is in various parts; some are agitating for restructuring of system of governance, some are agitating for restructuring in terms of geopolitical zones and all manner of things, that is not the key thing.
What we need to do first is to restructure our minds and to restructure our policies in such a way that governance is directly linked to the people and whatever we do, we must ensure that it’s all-inclusive.
When the people are happy and when we are actually beginning to impact on the people in a more positive way and there is less hunger and more employment, you’ll find that people will have less discourse on issues of restructuring and issues on secession.Those things won’t come to mind, the holistic thing is that all these issues are actually bordering more on failures of governance.”
