THE pan-Yoruba socio-political organization, Afenifere, yesterday, expressed worry over the worsening state of insecurity in the country, saying no part of the country is safe anymore, IgbereTV reports.
Afenifere also faulted the continued detention of Messrs Sunday Igboho and Nnamdi Kanu urging the Federal Government to release the two activists.
Speaking after its general meeting held in Isanya Ogbo, Ogun State, Afenifere leader, Pa Ayo Adebanjo x-rayed the state of the nation and lamented the various challenges facing Nigeria.
Adebanjo, however, insisted that restructuring the country will bring about the desired change in Nigeria.
He said: “Before and after independence, various efforts have been made to have a country, Nigeria, that everyone would be proud of. A country in which everyone lives a happy life and there is life more abundant for all.
“Afenifere, however, has no doubt whatsoever that the country can never get out of its present logjam, let alone, develop unless there is restructuring.
“Afenifere feels that one of the things that have been a great cog in the wheel of Nigeria’s progress today was the rubbishing of true federalism.
It means that true federalism must be allowed to be effectively operational immediately. In other words, States and local government councils must be allowed to enjoy self-governance as provided for them in the Constitution.
