Nigeria will remain at standstill without restructuring – Senator Ohuabunwa


The Senator representing Abia North at the National Assembly, Mao Ohuabunwa, has said that Nigeria will remain at a standstill without restructuring.

He stated this in Umuahia on the sideline of the inauguration of a Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) known as the Follow Better Organization.

Ohuabunwa, who regretted the failure of the issue of devolution of power in the National Assembly, assured that the Senators in support of restructuring would engage their colleagues to let them understand that restructuring does not mean disintegration

He said: “Nigeria cannot move forward without devolution. The issue failed to pass due to misinformation. We will engage our colleagues on the issue to let them understand the issue and correct the misinformation.

“For us, the South-East senators, total restructuring is the answer. What we have now is a military structure which we must restructure. We have to look at what our founding fathers bequeathed to us.

“We have to go back to democratic restructuring, devolve power, this is the way forward. For example Federal and State Governments have no business in primary education and primary health care.

“For us [South East Senators], what we intend to do is to go back and engage our colleagues to let them understand what we mean by the restructuring we are advocating.l
