Afenifere To Buhari: "You Are Confusing Restructuring With Break-Up"
Reactions have continued to trail President Muhammadu Buhari’s Independence Day’s broadcast.
The pan-Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere, has also lent its voice to the reactions generated by the broadcast.
Buhari had, in the broadcast, said irresponsible groups had hijacked the restructuring debate, decrying what he called the folly of “hot-headed” youths.
National Publicity Secretary, Yinka Odumakin, said Buhari was promoting those working for the break-up of the country by ignoring the demands of Nigerians for restructuring.
Odumakin added, “He should separate those agitating for restructuring from those calling for a break-up of the country. I think he is confusing restructuring with break-up.
“Those calling for restructuring are those working to avert the breakup of Nigeria while those opposed to it are the ones working for the break-up of the country.
“Let the President deal with restructuring; if he does not listen to the agitations for restructuring, he is promoting those who are working for the break-up of the country.”
