Restructuring: Fashola Fears ‘Brexit Experience’ For Nigeria admist increasing calls for a political restructuring of the country by different sections.
The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has expressed fears that Nigeria may experience the Brexit experience unless youth in the country are given political education to make them understand the issue of restructuring.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that a cross-section of Nigerians has been clamouring consistently for Nigeria’s restructuring as the basis for national cohesion, progress and peaceful co-existence.
Mr Fashola was speaking as a guest speaker at the 76th anniversary of the Island Club in Lagos at the weekend.
He said Nigerian youth need to be given the right political education to help them understand the issue of restructuring, to avert the Brexit experience.
Brexit refers to the decision by some people in Britain for the country to leave the European Union (EU), a choice that has thrown the country into confusion.
Mr Fashola argued that the quest for a better life had resulted in relentless agitations by some Nigerian groups pushing diverse ideologies in their demands for restructuring.
