Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed has stated that the call for restructuring by Nigerians will only be effective once it passes through the National Assembly.
He made this statement in a programme “Good Morning Nigeria ” on Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) on Monday, he revealed that there are different meanings to restructuring in the country but that Nigerians must allow NASS to follow the Constitution in a bid to realise any form of changes.
“Restructuring means different things to different people and that is why we have the debate that is going on now to collate the various ideas of Nigerians as to what restructuring means in order to know what exactly to do.
“To some. restructuring means going back to the former three of four regions, to some it means creation of additional states as was proposed in the 2014 Confab
“To some, restructuring means resource control, to some it means devolution of more power to states while to some it means state police
“Let us collate and aggregate what Nigerians mean by restructuring and of course we still need to go back to National Assembly if we want to effect any change in the constitution,” he said.
