Restructuring ‘ll solve Nigeria’s problems – RAM Chair

Maj-Gen. Henry Ayoola, National Chairman of RAM

Restructuring is the major key to resolving the crisis facing Nigeria and its peoples, the National Chairman of Restructuring Actualization Movement (RAM), Gen. Henry Ayoola (Rtd) has said.

Ayoola who made this known in Abuja yesterday in a press conference addressed by the organization also said the damage the military has caused the nation through her many incursion on governance, maintained that the collective destiny of Nigeria presently remained far more important than any group’s interest.

He said that RAM has determined to birth a New Nigeria by galvanizing public consensus towards moving from mere agitation to actualization of restructuring Nigeria.

He informed that restructuring in its simplest form, would involve the honest and holistic overhauling of the consisting instruments, policies, strategies, systems processes and procedure.

Calling for constitutional review as part of restructuring, Ayoola said some of the already works done should be looked through and fine-tunes to meet national aspiration.

For Instance, reports of various national conferences, the 2014 National conference, the APC True Federalism Committee and wide range consultation with socio-cultural groups across board.”Particularly, the omnibus  Exclusive Legislative List that has largely under-delivered critical social services and benefits of democracy  to the people needs to be reviewed.

The National Chairman of RAW also said Nigerians deserved and have desired restructuring and RAW is determined to deploy all endeavours to deliver restructuring for the people consistent with the provisions of the constitution.

He said with about 70 per cent of Nigerians from virtually all regions are favourable disposed to restructuring as they are feeling shirt-changed and frustrated by worsening situation of systemic and institutional collapse in all areas, individually and corporately.

He said this has informed the decision of the group to hold  the National Restructuring Actualization Summit  next week to garner the needed consensus to move up from mere agitation to actualization of  restructuring

Ayoola said military coup will no longer be an option to change government for any form of discontent by Nigerian soldiers, as the Nigerian military fared better under democracy as against military rule.

According to him, “Nigeria is on the edge and being bedeviled by myriad of insecurity challenges, thus underscoring the need for restructuring the Nigerian system to address the problems with enduring solutions”.
