In order to avoid breakup, Nigeria must restructure — Pastor

The Founder and Senior Pastor, Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye has called on Nigerian leaders to restructure the nation in order to avoid breakup.

Pastor Adeboye made this known on Saturday, October 3, at a 60th Independence Day Celebration Symposium co-organised by RCCG and the Nehemiah Leadership Institute.

He said;

“Why can’t we have a system of government that will create what I will call the United States of Nigeria? Let me explain. We all know that we must restructure. It’s either we restructure or we break, you don’t have to be a prophet to know that one. That is certain – restructure or we break up.

Now, we don’t want to break up, God forbid. In restructuring, why don’t we have a Nigerian kind of democracy? At the federal level, why don’t we have a President and a Prime Minister?

If we have a President and a Prime Minister and we share responsibilities between these two so that one is not an appendage to the other. For example, if the President controls the Army and the Prime Minister controls the Police. If the President controls resources like oil and mining and the Prime Minister controls finance and inland revenue, taxes, customs etc. You just divide responsibilities between the two.

At the state level, you have the governor and the premier, and the same way, you distribute responsibilities to these people in such a manner that one cannot really go without the other. Maybe we might begin to tackle the problems.

If we are going to adopt the model, then we need to urgently restore the House of Chiefs. I have a feeling that one of our major problems is that we have pushed the traditional rulers to the background and I believe that is a grave error.

Without any doubt, we must restructure and do it as soon as possible. A United States of Nigeria is more likely to survive than our present structure,”

  1. Good idea…but they’ll still appoint or elect one Hausa Dummy to take up the position, so it really makes no difference🤦🏾‍♀️
