‘Only restructuring’ll bring equity, justice in S/East, S/South’

TROUBLED by the unwholesome activities of herdsmen on its Eastern flank, destabilised by the actions of militant groups in the South and disappointed at the perceived failure of its leaders, the southern part of Nigeria seems to be in distress.

North is not afraid of restructuring- Ndume

It depends. If Nigerians want restructuring, I have no problems with that. But it can’t be one part of the country, it must be holistic.

If you are in public office and you use that office for private gain, we know that is corruption. So, it is in an attempt to give a veneer of legality to corruption that we pretend we do not know what corruption is but we do. We know the people who are thieves even in our traditional societies, and we also know that those people who are taking things that dosn’t belong to them are engaging in corruption.
