Pastor Enoch Adeboye who is the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church has called for the restructuring of Nigeria.
He made the statement on Saturday during a symposium organised by RCCG and the Nehemiah Leadership to mark the 60th Independence anniversary of Nigeria.
The cleric said in order to avoid disintegration in the country, that it is necessary to restructure as quickly as possible.
In his words, pastor Adeboye says: “Why can’t we have a system of government that will create what I will call the United States of Nigeria? Let me explain. We all know that we must restructure. It is either we restructure or we break, you don’t have to be a prophet to know that one. That is certain – restructure or we break up.
“Now, we don’t want to break up, God forbid. In restructuring, why don’t we have a Nigerian kind of democracy? At the federal level, why don’t we have a President and a Prime Minister?”
He also emphasized that the position of traditional rulers must be re-evaluated as they are "the actual landlords" that "control the respect of their people".
