North not Afraid of Restructuring – Tambuwal, elRufai

The Sokoto State Governor Aminu Waziri Tambu­wal said that the North was not against restructuring.
He said that like other Nigeri­ans, the North believes in restruc­turing.

He however said that any de­cision on restructuring the coun­try must be inclusive and follow due process.
He said: “I am sure that at the end of the day, we shall all be bet­ter informed about the kind of re­structuring we need in Nigeria and the way the North can best benefit from any such arrangement.

“As a country, we must look to the future and agree on what in the long-run will benefit us all. We all want a country where there is peace and progress, where justice is a given, where all lives are safe and people can pursue their legitimate livelihoods wherever they choose.
“The idea that the North is against restructuring because it benefits most from the current state of things is circumscribed and patently false.

“Let us be clear: the North wants restructuring as much as an­yone else. However, as a people, we do not easily jump unto the band­wagon because we are always there for the long haul”.

The Governor of Kaduna State, Mallam Nasiru el-Rufai, said that “the North is the elder broth­er in the present arrangement, as such while we articulate our posi­tion, we must present it in a dif­ferent manner from the way oth­er regions do, as far as this issue of restructuring is concern.

“I have seen regions that are militant about it and don’t seem to understand the need to come to­gether in a very humongous and amicable way to arrive at what is best for this nation.

“The North has been a lead­er; I believe it must remain a lead­er. While the various regions carry their regional flags, it is the respon­sibility of the North to carry the na­tional flag all along the debate from here to the end”.
