Former Governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, recently calls for the restructuring of Nigeria. While presenting the key note address with the theme: “the Restructuring of Nigeria, a Critical Analysis” at the 2018 Annual Law Week of the Nigerian Bar Association, Owerri Branch, Obi said that since the present structure was not working, the need for restructuring was not only desirable but somewhat imperative.

Debunking the belief that restructuring amounts to dismemberment as some people erroneously believe, Obi said that restructuring was just an acknowledgement that what Nigeria runs today was a failure and that when something failed, an alternative should be sought.

Reviewing the state of the nation as a proof that Nigeria is not working, Obi compared Nigeria to other countries of the same developmental strides in the 80s such as China and South Korea and using facts and figures, submitted that they have all fared better than Nigeria in all indices of development. He said that restructuring meant looking for what those people did that lifted them up and doing them as well. Obi argued that Nigeria, for instance, had over 10 million out of school children, lost over 4 million jobs last year, with 16 million unemployed graduates, had remained incapable of generating enough power for herself and was inexorably moving negatively as could be seen through daily killings of Nigerians and that the aggregate of all these centripetal, divisive forces make restructuring imperative.
