Edo State Governor, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, on Friday declared that given the cost of governance at the centre, restructuring is inevitable if Nigeria must make progress as a country.
He made the declaration while hosting former Secretary General of the Common Wealth, Chief Emeka Anyaoku, who paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, Benin City.
Obaseki extolled the leadership quality of Anyaoku, stressing that the former top scribe of the Commonwealth stands for good governance and part of the generation that did the nation proud while in office. “He is an international personality who stands for good governance and diplomatic skills,” Obaseki said.
Speaking during the visit, Anyaoku said that Nigeria will fare better if the on-going call to restructure the country into regions is adhered to.
The international statesman noted that Nigeria’s economy was more viable and rate of development faster when it operated a regional system of government.
He described Obaseki as a visionary governor, noting that Edo State is fortunate to have him.
