The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has said contrary to insinuations, President Muhammadu Buhari was not against restructuring.
Speaking with journalists in Awka, Anambra State, the Minister said the Buhari- led administration had already commenced the restructuring process starting with the nation’s economy.
Ngige also assured Nigerians that the President would also look into the political restructuring of the country, once he is done with repositioning the country’s economy.
He said, “Nigerians have positively changed their way of doing things for the better and have become more prudent and judicious in their spending pattern.
“It’s one after the other. After economic restructuring to reposition the economy of this country, the Buhari administration will embark on the political restructuring and will set the modalities for the exercise.”
On the issue of militancy, Ngige urged the various seperatist groups to lay down their arms, saying violence was not the answer to their grievances.
“Militancy and agitations are not the answer to resolving Nigeria’s myriads of problems, which the Buhari administration didn’t create in the first place.
“What is required is for all to support this administration to meet its set goals for the development and transformation of all sections of the country,” Ngige added.
