There is a need for a short-term restructuring according to former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof Attahiru Jega.
According to him, this restructuring must be carried out before the general elections in 2023. He insisted that this will help address some of the challenges facing the country.
However, he accused the National Assembly and the federal government of lacking the political will to restructure the country, Daily Trust reports.
Jega stated this at the 2021 Public Lecture he delivered at the Achievers University, Owo, Ondo State, on Tuesday evening titled, “Towards stabilising the Nigeria federation.”

He said:
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the leader of the Afenifere group, Ayo Adebanjo on Thursday, November 11, said the Yoruba socio-political organisation would mount pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure Nigeria undergoes restructuring
Adebanjo said it is important that restructuring is actualised in Nigeria before the 2023 general election. Speaking at a press conference in Lagos, the leader of the group said for posterity's sake, he owes the younger generation a duty to speak truth to power and make necessary clarifications for his people on different issues.

Adebanjo also noted that despite an initial agreement to restructure the country before President Buhari assumed office, he (Buhari) has failed to heed the call of the people on restructuring. He also said that the president has failed to make any known stance on devolution of powers, fiscal federalism and state policing in Nigeria.
In another development, Legit.ng reported that the political atmosphere is indeed tense as prominent persons in the country are seeking ways to create a new party. The reason for this move was to outclass the ruling All progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who has so far failed in the delivery of its promises to Nigerians.
The NCFront made the disclosure on Friday, October 29, while announcing plans to launch a “credible alternative mega ideological party by November”. While everyone is calling for restructuring, the National Consultative Front (NCFront) co-chairperson, Prof Pat Utomi will soon meet with Prof Attahiru Jega and Olisa Agbakoba (SAN)-led National Political Coalition on Electoral Reforms introduced on Friday, October 1.
