Former vice-president of Nigeria, Atiku Abubakar, has expressed his happiness over Northern States’ support of the call for restructuring.
Writing on his Twitter page on Tuesday, Atiku also agreed with Bauchi state Governor, Mohammed Abubakar’s stance, that youths should have a say in a restructured Nigeria.
He tweeted: “I am happy to see Northern States backing the call for restructuring starting with the devolution of powers.
“I agree with Bauchi State Governor Abubakar @GovMAA, that our youths should have priority in a restructured Nigeria with true federalism.”
Atiku earlier this week, stated that Nigeria’s current arrangement was not working.
Speaking at a youth forum in Abuja, he recalled that the Political Conference of 1995 recommended new system of presidential government in which holders of the office would spend one-term of six years.
He explained that the recommendation was to also make the presidency rotate among the six geo-political zones.
