Former President Goodluck Jonathan says restructuring alone will not help solve the security and other challenges facing the country.
Speaking at the 18th Daily Trust Dialogue held on Thursday in Abuja, Jonathan said other solutions should be provided to solve the numerous problems bedeviling Nigeria.
Jonathan also asked Nigerians to come up with specific solutions that will fit the country’s numerous challenges.
The former president, however, asked Nigerians to restructure their minds, thoughts, and beliefs before restructuring the nation.
He also urged Nigerians to solve issues that polarize the nation such as nepotism, ethnic and religious differences, and lack of patriotism, before talking about restructuring the country.
“Discussion on restructuring will not help except we restructure our minds.
“Some of the challenges faced at the national level are still there at the state and local government levels….and sometimes even in our communities.
“We cannot restructure without solving issues that polarize us; nepotism, ethnic and religious differences and lack of patriotism,” he posited.
