Nigeria Needs Restructuring With Proper Foundation — Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu acknowledged the necessity of restructuring Nigeria as a crucial measure for national rejuvenation during a private visit to the leader of the Pan Yoruba sociopolitical group, Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti, in Akure, Ondo state capital.

Speaking to the media after the closed-door meeting, the National Publicity Secretary of Afenifere, Comrade Jare Ajani, revealed Tinubu’s sentiments regarding the country’s restructuring.

According to him, Tinubu emphasized the importance of laying a proper foundation before embarking on any restructuring initiatives. He cautioned against rushing into the process without adequate groundwork, warning that premature restructuring could lead to its collapse.

Ajayi said the President also understands that Nigerians are suffering and said “On the hardship Nigerians are facing, he (Tinubu) assured that very soon Nigeria will overcome it, and its a matter of time because the kind of the policies government is implementing will bring positive solution to the challenges.”

According to him, the President who asked Nigerians not to pity him over the enormous task of nation-building before him, said when he took the oath of office, that he pledged his allegiance to the Federal Republic of Nigeria, that he knows what he is facing.

I’m quoting him now; “I prayed for it, I dance for it, I campaigned for it and I got it. I know the enormous of responsibility so don’t pity me Baba just sit down and relax.” He (Tinubu) assured Nigerians that the struggle he understood and that he is trying to build the structures that will not be reversed.

“He said that structure he is trying to put in place in Nigeria economically, socially, and politically would be such that it would bring Nigeria back to where it is supposed to be. He said that Nigerians should grow our foods. That we should eat the food we grow. Doing so would wean us from depending on foods from foreign sources. A nation that fully depends on food from outside can not get it.
