The Publicity Secretary of Middle Belt Forum, MBF, Isuwa Dogo, maintained that restructuring of Nigeria was inevitable, adding that those against it are political illiterates.
This, the group said while criticising Governor of Zamfara State, Bello Matawalle, for labeling proponents of true federalism as insincere and unserious.
“Anyone that says what was decided during the 2014 national conference is not in order is a political hypocrite. Nobody who knows what is happening in Nigeria today would claim that the issue of restructuring is not in order. Whether we like it or not, there would be restructuring some day and if we do not want a peaceful restructuring, we are inviting a violent one. Those who make a peaceful transition impossible make a violent transition inevitable.
“Those who say peaceful restructuring is not possible, will put Nigeria in a situation whereby violence will take over. These are realities of life. Those against restructuring are political illiterates. Our vision for restructuring is a peaceful rearrangement of the political system that will bring equity, stability and economic growth in every part of the country,” Dogo said.
In an exclusive interview published in Daily Sun, Governor Mattawale criticised those calling for restructuring, describing them as ‘insincere’ and ‘unserious’.
