    Governor Yahaya is very intelligent. I have always been admiring him. Now I confirm he is higly intelligent because I know my in my mind restructuring is nothing but another lying. Corruption is our big problem, project implementation failures etc. etc. look at this ” The Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, has called on Nigerians to disregard calls for the restructuring of the country, describing such calls as mere political deceit.”
    I urge Nigerian to ask their governors leaders to spend money according to what is meant for period.

      You really don’t know what we mean by restructuring. Economic factor is included, equal representation at the federal level is included, greater power to states to cutivate, harvest its resources and then pay returns to the central. I agree corruption is a problem here but we need to upgrade our method of fighting crime from catching criminals to crime prevention. And with the decentralization of the police force from federal to state police for example, the police will be better equipped to fight and prevent crime. Restructuring is the only answer to the Nigerian problems.

    Fulani’s terrorist herdsmen killers are not going to allow Nigerian the freedom to achieve their potential. Bello exemplified what’s wrong with Nigerian.
    A governor that was imposed on the Kogi People by President Buhari and the Fulani’s colonial caliphate that controlled the system.
    Why would he want restructure or self determination for what they believe are their slaves in the south and middle Belt,
