Why Nigeria will not, will never Work - Ambode


Former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Olabode George says Nigeria will never work unless the nation is restructured and more power is devolved to states.
He said that insecurity and other challenges currently bedevilling the nation have shown that the nation cannot be adequately administered from the centre.
The PDP chieftain lamented that instead of seeking solutions to the myriad problems, many political gladiators were more concerned about scheming for power in 2023.
George, who is a former Military Governor of Ondo State, expressed fear that Nigeria might not survive to 2023 due to the “discordant tunes and discontentment from individuals and various groups complaining of one form of marginalisation or the other”.
He spoke in an interview with Saturday Sun.
Asked if he was still nursing his presidential ambition, George said he was more concerned about Nigeria’s survival at the moment.
“What all these growing pockets of crises have shown is that it is impossible to manage this country from one centre. It is not ideal and it will never work.
“The present structure we are running is defective; it is military in outlook, and it can’t fit into any democratic setting.
“Government must be near the people. There must be devolution of power. When I look at the present situation in the country, the question I ask myself is this: do I still want to contest?
“There must be a rethink about the structure of this country. I’m seriously requesting President Buhari to restructure this country. He doesn’t have to start from the beginning because there was a national confab in 2014, and the President can start from there.
“With the way things are going on in the country today, Nigeria can never, and will never work.
“We are just patching things together but for how long are we going to continue that way? We are now at a level where we can’t continue to patch any longer.”
