Tinubu, Bisi Akande Clash Over Call For Restructuring


Tunde Ogunmola

The All Progressives Congress APC national leader, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Southwest leader of the party, Chief Bisi Akande are at loggerheads over call for restructuring of the country. Tinubu recently joined the growing list of Nigerians calling for a restructuring of the country, which will give everybody a sense of belonging. Tinubu had recently explained that there were immense benefits attached to a restructuring, that will create the right balance.

He said thus: “It would be better to restructure things to attain the correct balance between our collective purpose on one hand and our separate grassroots realities on the other hand”.

But Chief Bisi Akande differs with Tinubu on the issue of restructuring when he said ” Restructuring is not our language, go and ask those who are advocating restructuring to define it. What we want is devolution of functions from the centre to the states and the local governments. Restructuring is the language of other groups of people. Restructuring is not in the APC constitution or manifesto”.
