Akeredolu made this call at the 39th Annual National Scientific Conference of the Association of Community Pharmacists of Nigeria held in Abuja on Wednesday, December 2, 2020,

He said, “There is no doubt that the country experiences serious socio-economic challenges in virtually every part. While a sizable chunk of these problems is attributable to the global crises, there are others which call our attention, urgently, to an appraisal of the fundamental issues which define nations.

“It is unprofitable to resort to a facile description of the current upheavals in Nigeria without looking at the factors which militate seriously against our quest for nationhood. We must analyse these issues with a view to determining the workability of the current structure. We must seek solutions to the endemic problems bedeviling the country.

“The over-dependence on oil revenue is retrogressive. Modern economies don’t thrive on monoliths. The country must pay more than passing attention to the issue of diversification.

“In addition, the federating units should, progressively, assume distinctive identities discernible in the economic activities’ peculiar to them and for which they are best suited to undertake.

“The current structure promotes indolence and kills ingenuity. Every part of the country must be encouraged to develop according to its potential. There must be deliberate devolution of responsibilities to the States.”

KanyiDaily recalls that the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has warned that the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government should restructure country “as soon as possible” in order to avoid breakup.
