Katsina State Governor, Aminu Masari has expressed that Nigeria needs restructuring to overcome its current challenges.
He cautioned those calling for the disintegration of Nigeria to have a rethink, describing them as senseless people whose agitations are not healthy for the development of Nigeria.
Masari stated that while the unity of Nigeria was sacrosanct, it was better to insist on the need to restructure the country in all its ramifications rather than clamouring for disintegration.
He made these remarks at a news conference on Friday.
He admonished those calling for the division of the country to jettison such ideas and join hands together with other Nigerians to move the country forward.
He said those calling for the division of Nigeria from other parts of the country “have no even sense. If they have sense, their people move around Nigeria more than any other person. They are found in nearly all villages in Nigeria.
“It is not the discussion of their leaders. It is not the discussion of those with sense among them. They are thugs. They have their own people in all villages. We, also, have our own who are living in the forest.
“But I do not think a sensible leader from that part of the country that knows what is doing will call for the division of the country. If the country is divided, where will you go? You do not have a country to go to,” he said.
