‘It is time to restructure Nigeria,’ Akeredolu tells FG

In a statement signed on Monday by Richard Olatunde, the governor’s chief press secretary, in Akure, the state capital, Akeredolu emphasised the need to reassess the current socio-political structure in the country to ensure progress and development.

The governor expressed confidence in the new administration of President Bola Tinubu, while he urged him to revalidate the lost hope of Nigerians.

“The need for restructuring has become undeniable. The federal government must relinquish its excessive control over the sub-national entities. It is imperative that security is decentralised to the states. There is no better time than now for the establishment of state police,” Akeredolu said.

“The symbol of the June 12 struggle made the ultimate sacrifice. We must not allow our people to continue paying the price in vain. It is devastating. By devolving power to the sub-national entities, we can deepen our democratic values, strengthen governance, and make our nation more resilient.”

The Ondo governor said June 12 represents more than just a milestone in the pursuit of justice, adding that the day serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding principles of equity and fairness.

He called on the citizens to reflect on the significance of June 12 and honour the sacrifices made by the heroes of Nigeria’s democracy.

“Today is a commemoration of sacrifices, patriotism, and peaceful struggle. June 12 marks a significant moment in our country’s democratic history, symbolising a profound renewal of hope and ambition,” Akeredolu noted.

“It serves as a powerful reminder of our unwavering optimism and determination in the face of formidable obstacles.”
