Former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, has said on Wednesday that the citizens were yet to witness the change promised to them by the All Progressives Congress, APC, administration in the country.

Mr Atiku, who spoke at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN, in a lecture series organized by the Senior Staff Club of the University, said Nigeria had failed to realize her potentials as a result of refusal of the political leaders to restructure the country.

“We need restructuring in order to address the challenges that hold us back; these problems will remain unaddressed unless we restructure‎,” he said.

Explaining further, he said the “Issue of restructuring is beyond resource control; there are more important issues. In my own vision, restructuring will not make some states richer and some poorer; it is a win-win situation for all the States. Nigeria will derive more revenue after restructuring.”

Present at the event include former governors Chief Okwesiieze Nwodo, ‎Obong Victor Atttah, Ohanaeze President, Nnia Nwodo, Afenifere spokesman, Yinka Odumakin, among others.
