Why Nigeria may soon collapse, break up – Gen. Zamani, Prof. Akintoye


Major General Zamani Lekwot, retd., and Prof. Banji Akintoye, have urged those afraid of restructuring to express their fears and be open to discussion.

They sounded it clearly that without restructuring Nigeria will break up.

According to them, for one to keep saying ‘Nigeria will not break up’ is a self-deception, adding that the country will one day collapse.

They spoke on Wednesday at the 10th anniversary symposium of the late Senator Abraham Adesanya held in Lagos, where the issue of restructuring was prominent.

Lekwot said Nigeria must be restructured “otherwise the structure will one day collapse on us and future generation and God will not forgive us.”

Prof Akintoye, a historian, on his own, said the country was likely to break up if it does not urgently restructure.

He said, “If Nigeria does not take steps to urgently restructure itself and return to the federal system, the federal system that we saw in the 1950 s up till 1965, Nigeria is very likely to break up.

“Don’t say your country cannot break up, any country can break up.”
