The presidency has blamed the former ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the various agitations for the restructuring of the nation.
This was made known by the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity to President Muhammadu Buhari, Femi Adesina.
He said the recent clamour from various quarters was being instigated by the opposition.
Adesina said: ”I begin to be suspicious at times that this call for restructuring is another form of opposition politics.
”You find people who had been in power for 16 years are now the champions of restructuring, so restructuring has become another form of opposition.”
The presidential spokesperson said the federal government is not opposed to the restructuring of the country, but will not allow anything that will lead to its disintegration, as the Buhari administration will do everything possible to ensure that Nigeria remains one united people and nation.
”This government is not antagonistic towards restructuring but the government will not brook any form of restructuring that would destabilise the country,” he added.
