Falana Calls For Urgent Restructuring Of Nigeria

Human Rights Lawyer, Femi Falana (SAN), has called for the urgent restructuring of Nigeria.

Falana made the call on Wednesday while speaking at the Mike Okonkwo Annual Lecture in Lagos. According to him the restructuring he is proposing is not the one that will put more money in the pockets of rulers.

He said “It is a restructuring that will transfer the enormous power at the centre to the federating units.

He also believes that the issue of state policing among others needs to be immediately addressed to fix some of the challenges the nation currently faces.

Falana said for instance “You want to police Lagos, but you bring a policeman from Sokoto like the colonialists will do and you take somebody from Lagos to Sokoto, adding that Policing begins with intelligence gathering.
