    This is why I attacked those against restructuring – Atiku

    Former vice president and chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress has detailed reasons for saying that Northern Nigeria was not prepared for the restructuring of the Nation.
    In a statement signed by his media aide, Mazi Paul Ibe, obtained by PoliticsNGR, the former VP pointed out that restructuring was not just a northern issue but a challenge of nationhood that cannot be sept under the carpet.
    Atiku came under fire recently for saying that those who opposed the restructuring of Nigeria were lazy. The statement, however, clarified the position of the politician pointing out that he was referring to the Lazy elite who opposed restructuring because of political power they perceived as a permanent source of economic advantages.
    “Atiku Abubakar is a Nigerian of northern origin. If he puts down the North, doesn’t he put himself down? His value as a person is irrevocably tied to that of Nigeria and the region that God chose to originate him from.
    It is a historical fact that northern Nigeria, and more specifically, the Kanem Bornu Empire and southern Nigeria, more specifically, the ancient Benin Kingdom, are the birthplace of some of the oldest civilisations on earth.
    What does that teach us? It teaches us that the North and the South have a great history which should be a stepping stone to an even greater future.
    Northern Nigeria can learn from other regions, just as other regions can learn from northern Nigeria. Northern and southern Nigeria are in symbiosis with each other, not competition,” he said.
