‘Nigeria has failed’ – Oby Ezekwesili espouses restructuring

A minister of Education and presidential candidate, Oby Ezekwesili, has reiterated the urgent need for the restructuring of the country, which according to her, has failed.

Stressing that every geopolitical region dislikes the way the nation is presently constituted, Ezekwesili said Nigeria had failed in the practice of democracy, federalism, and constitutionalism.

She stated this as the ‘Restructuring Summit’ organized by the Restructuring Actualisation Movement in Abuja on Thursday, arguing that the 1999 Constitution was not serving the people.

She said, “Nigeria has engaged in a failed practice of democracy, federalism as well as constitutionalism.

“Nigeria has become an orphan country since infancy. Whereas some people would always quote Chief Obafemi Awolowo, who said Nigeria is a mere geographical reality, the truth is that every region of this country has shown in one way or the other that they have absolutely no interest in Nigeria as constructed.

“The latest revelation of this situation is the fact that some of our Fulani brothers are saying that there is a closer affinity between them and the Fulani person from any part of the world beyond anything they can feel for the Nigerian, who is not Fulani, and that’s incredible,” she said.
