Following the agitation for Biafra and Oduduwa nations, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu, few days ago said that the presidency's stance on secession is that the country will be united and will remain as one. Garba Shehu also kicked against the idea by some Nigerians, for the country to be restructured on the order of President Muhammadu Buhari.
One man who has publicly told the Federal Government to restructure the country, is the Acting National Leader of Afenifere, Pa Ayo Adebanjo. According to TheCable, Pa Ayo Adebanjo has sent a strong message to the Muhammadu Buhari's led administration over the calls for restructuring, likewise the call for secession by many Nigerians. Pa Ayo Adebanjo told the president that secession calls are as a result of his failure to hearken to restructuring calls.
In an interview with Arise Television, Pa Ayo Adebanjo said that the cause of the problems we are facing, is that President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to restrucure the country, which made many to agitate for secession, because we are witnessing more of a military rule than that of a democratic one. Ayo Adebanjo said that restructuring Nigeria, will keep us united, but President Buhari has failed to listen and also failed to give us an alternative.
Pa Ayo Adebanjo further blasted Mallam Garba Shehu, for his comments that the president is not interested in what Nigerians are saying. He asked if Muhammadu Buhari is a democrat, if yes, he should behave as one, because things have gone south in our country.
After the interview, Pa Ayo Adebanjo also spoke today at the service of songs and tribute ceremony for Late Yinka Odumakin. Ayo Adebanjo claimed that Buhari's failure to address the situation, has given rise to people like Sunday Igboho and Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, who he will not blame, because injustice reigns in the country. He further warned President Muhammadu Buhari to restrucure the country, or many "Sunday Igbohos" and "Nnamdi Kanus' will rise up in the country.
