Restructuring will divide Nigeria like sharp knife, says ACF chieftain

As many Nigerians continue to lend their voices against and for restructuring the country, the immediate past Secretary-General of Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF), Mr Anthony Sani has said that restructuring could divide Nigeria, with some sections likely to be more socio-economically viable others.

Sani said those who are agitating for restructuring wished Nigerians should live as if they are in different countries and not in one united Nigeria.

ACF chieftain added that if restructuring must remain on the national discourse, it should be left for politicians and political parties to ensure it forms part of their manifestos in order to convince their supporters to accept it or not.

This was contained in a statement made available to journalists on Thursday.

“Those who insist on restructuring of the country that will allow sections of the country to develop at their own pace are those who ignore the trite that reduction of inequality that comes with balanced development and good governance is not only good economics but also good politics.

“Such people wish Nigerians should live as if they are in different countries and not in one Nigeria. Nigeria cannot afford to be a nation where some sections are on the cutting edge while some others are on the knife-edge of survival.

“Since the term restructuring means different things to different groups of people, the democratic way of going around the problems is for political parties which seek to restructure the country to articulate their versions of restructuring in their respective party manifestos which they can use to enlighten the people for informed judgement during elections.

“Also, I do not share the view expressed recently by the PDP Publicity Secretary, Mr Kola Ologbondiya, that the reports on restructuring by a committee of the APC be rejected while that by 2014 Confab be accepted.

“The two reports are to be rejected precisely because both reports are by unelected groups who cannot foist their preferences on the rest of the country,” the statement said.

Now, the truth is gradually coming out from the North.

For years, the North harped on "unity" and indivisibility of Nigeria as if they do so for noble reasons.
It is now clear that the North is holding onto current configuration of Nigeria as a means of survival.

The problem with that is that it is evil to hold down other groups just because you somehow cannot keep up with them.
Whose fault is it that the North cannot keep up with the South if Nigeria is restructured?
For DECADES the North kept its people poor and uneducated, and now the chicken are gradually coming home to roost.

Anyway, I have more to say, so keep reading below...

I say this as a Southern Nigerian and an Eastern Nigerian...

It is the greatest form of irresponsibility for any southern Nigerian to accept the North's reasons for retaining current structure.

You southerners send your kids to school. You train them well. You hustle to provide for your children to ensure they develop well, etc.

And when they become grown up adults, they find that the same North that refused to send their kids to proper schools has cornered ALL strategic positions in the country, rendering their future a waste, unless they travel out of the country.

Who benefits from this wheel of endless enslavement? The North and its allies! -recall our women in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries where they serve as maids and sex slaves? Yep, that is the future that awaits your children if you do not end this madness in Nigeria.

So, if you want a better future for your children, you MUST DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER TO EITHER
RESTRUCTURE NIGERIA OR DISINTEGRATE IT. Simple.

Your children will thank you for it.
