Restructuring alone can’t solve Nigeria’s problems – Pat Utomi

A former presidential candidate, Prof. Pat Utomi, has stated that restructuring is not the panacea to Nigeria’s development challenges.

According to Utomi, a former presidential candidate, evidence showed no correlation between more resources and development in the country.

He made the statement while speaking at “The Platform,’’ a national discourse forum organised by the Covenant Christian Centre in Lagos on Monday.

The APC chieftain further explained that some states with less resources were more developed than some resource-rich states.

The APC chieftain, therefore, said that the belief that the states would do better with more resources was a myth. He added that only those states that made the people the core of their governance would develop.

He described governance in most states as poor, while saying local governments in the country were dysfunctional.

“The local governments in the country are dysfunctional and are a bloody waste of resources,’’ he said.

Speaking further, Utomi said Nigeria needed to be restructured in a way that the costs of governance would be reduced, so as to be able to deliver the goods.

Utomi described the call for the creation of more states as antithetical to development.

Utomi said the destiny of the country was in the hands of everyone and urged Nigerians to work for the progress of the nation.
