Restructuring my foot! - Borno governor dismisses clamour as 'madness'/ Shettima
The Borno State governor, Alhaji Kashim Shettima, on Thursday described the clamour for the restructuring of the country as a “madness” that can be cured by good governance.
He spoke in Abuja at the book launch of a former Minister of Youths and Sports Development under the Goodluck Jonathan administration, Bolaji Abdullahi, who is now the National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Shettima, who was the Father of the Day, declared, “To hell with restructuring”, stressing that “this madness (clamour for restructuring) will stop" if government provides jobs and develops other sectors of the economy, particularly the education sector.
“People are talking about artificial intelligence, other nations are talking about nano technology or robotics engineering but unfortunately, the topical issue in Nigeria is restructuring. Restructuring my foot! To hell with restructuring.
“Let us improve on governance, let us work for the people, invest in education, create jobs for our people, this madness will stop,” he said, on the heels of clamour by southern groups and eminent personalities from the south and middle-belt for the restructuring of Nigeria as the only way to resolve most challenges facing the country.
