The immediate past Chairman of Leventis Group, Chief Joseph Oke has stated that Nigeria may not survive another century as a corporate entity if the needful was not done.
Oke spoke during the annual Discovery Lecture series at the Lagos State University, LASU, titled “Can Nigeria survive another century as a corporate entity?’’
He said if the country could continue for the next one thousand years, the action or inaction of the leaders as well as restructuring, had roles to play.
He said the necessary steps must be taken to prevent it from splitting.
He said, “The Local Government Council, which is the third tier and closest to the grassroots, is a marginalised government.
“The interest of all minority groups and the issue of derivation must also be addressed.
“The federation must be restructured to devolve more powers to the states, which must include policing, education, health, road network and security.”
