Anyi Iwuanyanwu who is a chieftain of the People Democratic Party (PDP) has warned that if Nigeria is not restructured, the country may cease to exist.
Speaking with The Sun, the PDP chieftain alleged some parts of the north has been benefitting from the status quo which was why they were against the call for restructuring.
He noted that a lot of Nigerians were interested in restructuring and that if this is not doen, it can affect the country’s existence.
He said: “But I tell them that nobody has moved forward, even then, in spite of the fact that they have been controlling the resources of the country centralised in Abuja, the headquarter of poverty in Nigeria is still the north, which shows that the system is also not still working for them.
“We want a situation where every components of this country begin to look inwards, generate revenue and use that revenue to develop themselves not somebody to go and get oil from Bayelsa, you bring it here for everybody. So people get lazy they are not doing anything. It is either we restructure or this country would perish.
“My prayer is that Buhari should not be the last president of Nigeria. South -South has spoken, the South-East has spoken, the South- West has spoken, the Middle Belt has spoken, even part of North -East like Atiku have said we should restructure.

“But a group of people mostly from the North-West are resisting change; you came to government and the mantra has changed, restructuring means change for those who said they don’t know what it means.”

In an interview with The Sun, Iwuanyanwu said Nigeria;s corruption goes back to the army which Muhammadu Buhari was a part of and so people should stop blaming Jonathan.
The PDP chieftain said the All Progressives Congress (APC) has failed in its promise to Nigerians because the party was ill-prepared for governance.
