Former Vice President of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, believes restructuring the country’s federalism is the way forward to a more vibrant and prosperous nation.

Mr Atiku, who made the recommendation on Monday at an event on Nigeria’s federalism, said secession and resource control was not the antidote for a better Nigeria.

He noted that while the current system being practiced in Nigeria might be working for some elites, it was not in the overall interest of the populace.

The former presidential aspirant added that although Nigeria’s federalism was due for restructuring, it was not the way small groups in the country clamoured for it.

He emphasised the importance to change, minimize or possibly stop some of the agitations.

Atiku further noted that the way forward was for every part of the country, every arm of government and the Nigerian people to be involved in negotiating the country’s future.

He explained that a better federalism would have a ripple effect on every aspect the life of the country.

The former vice president warned that doing otherwise would only continue to increase the negativity that has become the order of the day in Nigeria. (Channels TV)
