Buhari has started restructuring Nigeria – Lai Mohammed | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

The President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government says it has commenced the process of restructuring.

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed made the disclosure on Tuesday while featuring on Channels television.

The Minister revealed that the Federal Government is restructuring the country through power devolution.

Mohammed noted that restructuring to the Federal Government means its policies being felt by those at the grassroot and this has been happening.

He cited the directive by the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo that Police should commence community policing among others.
According to Mohammed, “For the Federal Government restructuring means devolution of power.
“Restructuring means for the Federal Government a system whereby government’s policies and programmes can reach everybody at the grassroots.
“For us, restructuring means ability that will allow you to deliver and in our own way, we have started.
“The Acting President (then) issued an order to the police that they should start implementing community policing; that is one aspect of restructuring that we believe will deliver better criminal justice.
“We as a government we look at our constitution as it is today and we follow strictly what the constitution says, and in applying the constitution we look at practical ways of reaching out to people.
“The constitution is the grundnorm today, that is the basis of our being together and you cannot today as a government do anything that is contrary to that Constitution because that is the supreme law of the country.
“So, even when you talk about restructuring you may need to amend certain provisions of the constitution, and we all know how cumbersome it is to do that.
“But we are not averse to genuine grievances, we are ready to look at them, but what the government cannot do is to react to the cacophony of voices.”
