Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has lambasted former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, for his insistence on restructuring.
He recalled that Atiku as the then sitting Vice President did not raise the issue, wondering why he suddenly became an advocate.
”The other day I read one of our leaders and my very good friend, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar saying that during the SDP days they said that they were going to restructure the country and that he was shocked that any of those elites who raised it then would turn round to kick against restructuring.
”That was a good observation but the issue is that when my good friend became vice president and his government was doing political conference what was wrong in him raising it even if it did not hold water as a sitting vice president?
”The voice of a sitting vice president is louder any day outside that of the president but I don’t think I heard him say anything about restructuring,” Thisday quoted Oshiomhole.
”What we need to restructure is attitude to governance, the issue of character, the issue of corruption, the issue of creative application of the resources and ensuring that governance is about delivering the greatest good to the greatest number”.
