‘Nigeria Will Collapse’, Ex Lawmaker Warns, Gives Reason That Stuns Nigerians

Dr. Wunmi Bewaji, former Minority Leader in the House of Representatives,
and chairman of the Coalition of Electoral Democrats, CODER, has warned of Nigeria’s imminent collapse if the country is not restructured.

The veteran lawmaker declared his unwavering support for restructuring, disclosing further that it is the political agenda of the South-West.

His words, “I am in support of restructuring; I started my political career in the South-West, which we call Western Nigeria.

“The restructuring was the number one agenda of Afenifere and also the number one agenda of the Alliance for Democracy, AD. Without restructuring, Nigeria will collapse.

“We have to come together, sit down and discuss, do it amicably with all maturity and understanding. But if we allow situations and circumstances to do it for us, then, we will not have control over it.

“I think the first option is better, whereby we are all able to come together and discuss, that way, at the end of the day, it will preserve the love and unity under whatever arrangement we come up with.

“On proposals that the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference should be a starting point.

“It may be a starting point, but you know a lot of things went on with the 2014 conference, but at the end of the day, I think what is important is sincerity.

“The All Progressives Congress, APC, itself set up the Nasir el-Rufai committee and it submitted a report. Where is the report? Why is that report not being implemented? So, you need sincerity, whether it is the 2014 or the el-Rufai committee report, you need sincerity.

“The APC campaigned in 2015 on the platform of restructuring, so what has the APC done on restructuring? Why is President Muhammadu Buhari keeping quiet? Why is he not giving leadership on the issue of restructuring which he used as a platform to power?

“This is the sincerity factor I am talking about. Nobody can resist restructuring, it is either we do it by ourselves or we allow situation and circumstances do it for us.”
