 Don’t dodge the fact, Nigeria needs restructuring to function effectively as a nation – Kingsley Moghalu

The Young Progressive Party (YPP)’s presidential aspirant , Kingsley Moghalu, says except Nigerian leaders want to dodge the fact, Nigeria needs restructuring before it can function effectively as a nation.

Moghalu said this during an interview on Channels Television Programme, Roadmap 2019. The former deputy governor of the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) added that Nigerian leaders must be courageous enough to tell the people the benefits of restructuring.


“Nigeria must be constitutionally restructured to function more effectively as a federation. Nigeria needs to be restructured so that our country can be stable and peaceful so that our country’s economy can prosper and we all prosper”


Moghalu also stated that Nigeria leaders must have the political will to tell themselves and their citizens the truth that Nigeria, as it is structured today, is not working. But the leadership wants the citizens to continue to live in lie.


As many Nigerians might believe restructuring would result in breakup, the YPP’s presidential aspirant was quoted as saying “Restructuring is not breaking up Nigeria. Restructuring Nigeria is to make Nigeria work.


“Constitutionally restructuring Nigeria is a huge issue. It involves the national question. The national question must be addressed in any restructuring exercise. The national question is, what is the basis of our identity as Nigerians? Secondly, do we want to live together even though we come from different nationality or backgrounds? Those are the two questions”
