Restructuring needed to move Nigeria forward, says Gani Adams
The Aare Ona Kankanfo of Yourbaland-designate, Gani Adams, has canvassed restructuring as solution to the country’s challenges
He spoke yesterday in Akure, when he paid a courtesy visit to the pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere.
According to him, the solutions to the country’s problems were well spelt out in the recommendations of the 2014 National Confab, and expressed displeasure that the Federal Government did not implement them.
He said: “We recommended 633 contexts to move this country forward, but I don’t know the body language of Mr. President who has refused to implement the outcome of that conference.
“Now, more than 15 states cannot pay the salary of their workers. How long shall we continue to be borrowing money to pay salaries or infrastructure development?”
He also decried the poor performance of the 2017 budget under the leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
He lamented that the Federal Government has not been able to implement 30 per cent of the budget.
“We are in trouble if this country is not restructured. I will continue to agitate for restructuring until it is done,” he said.
