2023: Tambuwal Blames Goodluck Jonathan For Not Restructuring Nigeria

Former President Goodluck Jonathan had the potential to reorganize Nigeria, but he failed to do so, according to Sokoto State Governor Aminu Tambuwal.

Tambuwal, a former Speaker of the House of Representatives, stated on Thursday in Akure, Ondo State, that the parliamentarians attempted to modify the country’s constitution while he was in charge of the Green Chamber, but Jonathan failed to sign the requisite bill.

He believes the restructuring issue might have been addressed if previous President Jonathan had allowed their proposals to be implemented.

According to him, the agitation for restructuring in Nigeria would have become history and the many of the challenges facing the country could have gotten solutions.

“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,” Tambuwal submitted.
