A former Governor of old Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has said that the only way out of the numerous challenges confronting Nigeria was to divide the country into six regions.
“Let us restructure the country and go back to the regional arrangement, and so, should abolish the states and go back to regions; instead of the 36 states, we should have six or seven regions,” he said.
Musa said the call for restructuring was valid, but insisted that those agitating for it should be able to make it clear to Nigerians what restructuring constitutes.
He said those calling for restructuring must think of what will unite the country and make Nigerians proud of themselves and of their country.
“As far as we are concerned, our restructuring idea is that, we have now seen the problem of weakening our regional government,” Musa was quited by the Sun.
