By Michael Ofulue, Osogbo

The Aare Onakakanfo of Yorubaland, Iba Gani Adams, has again charged President Bola Tinubu on the need to restructure Nigeria, saying restructuring is the best solution in solving Nigeria’s problem.

The leader of the Odua Peoples Congress, OPC stated this while speaking with journalist at the 10the World Congress of Oodua Progressives Union(OPU) held in Osogbo, Osun State.

Adams stressed that Nigeria is currently going through a lot at the moment and the only solution is restructuring and true federalism.

Speaking further, he said “true federalism is needed to tackle insecurity in the country”, calling on President Tinubu to urgently constitute the necessary structure to implement true federalism.

He also urged the President to heed the voice of wisdom from opinion leaders on things that will move the country forward.

“We have to remind him (Tinubu about restructuring because when you have a government in power you will have to remind those there what will move the country forward and he doesn’t know what is happening in most of the states even though they are given him intelligence report.

“As one of the country’s opinion leaders, we must remind Tinubu about the need to restructure. He should remember when he was a governor of Lagos State. He is an apostle of federalism.

“When he was a governor of Lagos, we learnt alot of things from him regarding true federalism. And since then, the issues still remain, Nigeria has not moved forward.

“OPU as a global organization also believes in restructuring, as the best political ideology. It is our belief that restructuring strongly allows the six federating units to enjoy their own autonomy to develop at their own pace. This is the only solution to the structural imbalances of Nigeria as a nation.
