Reactions have continued to trail the New Year Day's broadcast speech of President Muhammadu Buhari.

One major issue President Buhari addressed was the clamour for restructuring. The president made it clear he was not going to give in to the demand. 

This has, however, generated a lot of reactions from some Nigerians.

A former governor of Kaduna State, Balarabe Musa, has called for economic restructuring to ensure the delivery of good governance in Nigeria.

Musa made the call on Monday following President Muhammadu Buhari’s New Year broadcast.

The president had in the speech said the problem with Nigeria was not the structure but the process of doing things.

But, former Governor Musa said the problem with Nigeria has always been leadership rather than structures, explaining that regional system failed because leaders were pursuing secessionist agenda.

Although he aligned with President Buhari’s position that the process of governance needs to be improved upon, he faulted the economic system being operated currently.

Musa said the economy was in the hands of the private sector, hence the impoverishment of the masses, and suggested the restructuring of the economy to ensure that the government plays a greater role.
