Governor Tambuwal Blames Former President Goodluck Jonathan for Failing to Restructure Nigeria before leaving office

Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, on Thursday, blamed former President Goodluck Jonathan for not allowing the country’s constitution to be amended before he left office.

He frowned at Jonathan for not restructuring the country.

According to him, the former president ought to have among other things permitted a thorough electoral reform, which he said would have strengthened the country’s electoral system.

He claimed that, if the former president had listened to Nigerians’ agitations, restructuring the country would have helped to deepen the country’s democracy.

He argued that if Nigeria had been reformed, the country’s myriad problems, including insecurity, would have been resolved.

“I understand the debate about restructuring, fiscal federalism, and the devolution of power. I know all of these issues and understand them very well.

“As Speaker of the House of Representatives, we attempted but unfortunately former President Goodluck Jonathan did not sign that constitutional amendment that could have possibly addressed some of these challenges being raised in terms of restructuring, devolution of power among others.”
