Ondo State governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko, has warned against what he described as the activities of centrifugal forces, aimed at stalling the nation, insisting that the only means to make the forces fail was the immediate restructuring of the country.
Speaking in Akure, on Monday, Governor Mimiko said the nation was currently faced with serious challenges, submitting that there were some forces at play with the intention to derail the country.
“We have challenges in our nation; there has never been a time in the history of our country that these centrifugal forces have been more committed to pull us apart.
“These forces have never been this strong. They are getting stronger and stronger by the day,” Mimiko warned.
Submitting that the country must be restructured along the line of true federalism to make it viable and kill the intention of the negative forces, Mimiko said God designed Nigeria for a purpose, insisting that the country was not anybody’s contraption.
“I believe Nigeria is not anybody’s contraption and it’s not a coincidence. God designed this country for a purpose and my prayer is that whatever adjustment we need to make in our structure, in our attitude to governance and for Nigeria to fulfil destiny, God will make the adjustment possible.”
