Afenifere Knocks Buhari Heavily Over Restructuring
The Pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has knocked President Muhammadu Buhari, heavily over his stance on the call for restructuring of the country, claiming that it is an indication that the president is a confused man over the issue.
It would be recalled that in his Independence Day broadcast yesterday, Buhari had said that irresponsible groups had hijacked the restructuring debate, while he also called some youths hot-headed.
Reacting, Afenifere, through its National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin said Buhari was confusing call for restructuring with that for the breakup of Nigeria.
Odumakin said, “Buhari is indirectly promoting those working for the break-up of Nigeria by ignoring the demands of Nigerians for restructuring. He should separate those agitating for restructuring from those calling for a break-up of the country. I think he is confusing restructuring with break-up.
“Those calling for restructuring are those working to avert the breakup of Nigeria while those opposed to it are the ones working for the break-up of the country. Let the President deal with restructuring; if he does not listen to the agitations for restructuring, he is promoting those who are working for the break-up of the country.”
