‘Restructuring should allow states greater freedom’ (Guardian)

Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, yesterday, said he agreed with some Nigerians clamouring for the restructuring of the country.

Osinbajo, who spoke to newsmen after the Great Nigeria Pastors conference which held at the Theophilus Ogunlesi Hall, University Teaching Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, the Oyo State capital, also disclosed that states deserved greater freedom to control their resources, increase their income and internal security.

He said: “Restructuring is very important to us, as a people, and as a nation, but we also have to be careful with what we mean by restructuring.

“One of the issues raised which I agree with is that states should be able to control their resources, control their own security, they should be able to generate more income and exercise greater freedom.

“We discussed about security and we believe we should do more. We agreed that people feel more secured when they can control their security, which brings to fore the issue of state police. It will give them confidence.” Read more
