A former Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark, has warned that Nigeria might witness more chaos and worse state of insecurity if the government failed to restructure the polity ahead of the 2023 general elections.
Clark said the impending chaos will make the current agitations by Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and Yoruba Nation a child’s play if government refused to heed series of warnings on the need to restructure the country.
The octogenarian gave the warnings on Wednesday during a chat with newsmen at his Asokoro residence, Abuja.
Clark who leads the Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum (SMBLF), charged President Muhammadu Buhari not to allow Nigeria to disintegrate due to what he described as the authoritarian attitude of one individual.
He reiterated that restructuring has become essential, because it was one of the key issues in the APC’s manifesto when it was formed and during the 2015 presidential campaigns.
Clark noted that well meaning Nigerians from the South and the North have been calling for restructuring even as he urged President Buhari to, as matter of urgency, convoke a Representative Assembly or Town Hall meeting to consider the All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee Report on Restructuring or the 2014 National Conference report.
