Restructure Nigeria As You Advocated During Military Regime, Constitutional Lawyer Urges Tinubu

Former Head of Business Law, Enugu State University of Science and Technology, Dr. Chijioke Agbo, Monday, tasked President Bola Tinubu to restructure Nigeria to save the country from its current economic challenges.


Dr Agbo spoke in Enugu during an interview. He said President Tinubu was in the best position to implement the reforms, having been an advocate of restructuring as an activist.


He said, “Nigerians should champion the restructuring of the country. It is an existential problem, and it has to be on the front-burner. Struggles succeed on the basis of consistency. If South Africans had relaxed during apartheid, there wouldn’t have been freedom for them by now. Not restructuring Nigeria has created an existential problem, and it is with us.


“This call becomes more germane now that Tinubu is in charge. Although it appears that he is overwhelmed by the economy, otherwise he was prominent in the NADECO movement against the military. That was during the regime of Gen Ibrahim Babangida, particularly after the annulment of the June 12, 1993 presidential election.
