Opponents Of Restructuring Are Nigeria’s Problem – IYM
Movement (IYM) at the weekend declared that those who are opposed to restructuring of Nigeria into a true federal state should be held responsible for the socio-political and security threats currently rocking the nation.
The group, after a meeting in Enugu to appraise the outcome of their 17th Annual Convention recently held in Enugu, noted that the political, economic and social realities on ground today has made it impossible for Nigeria to move forward without an early return to true federalism.
“In other words, a political restructuring along the lines of true federalism has become inevitable. The resolutions of the 2014 Nation-al Conference should serve as a road map to the adoption of a new Constitution built on real federalism,” a communiqué issued by the group said.
The communiqué, which was signed by the President of IYM, Evangelist Elliot Uko, appreciated the patriotic Nigerian leaders who attended the recent IYM convention, noting that their “commitment to the struggle to save, rebuild and make Nigeria truly great, are greatly appreciated by the younger generation, whose future remains affected most, as Nigeria wobbles along in this unitary structure, instituted by a militaryinspired constitution.”
The youth group said that Nigerians were surprised at the determined effort by fellow Nigerians to continue the unhelpful pretence that all was well with the present structure of Nigeria, stressing that the pretence helps them hold down and dominate other regions, politically, remains the source of over 90 per cent of the agitations going on in the country today.
