Popular constitutional lawyer and human rights activist, Mike Ozekhome has come out to say that the stance of prominent leaders on the recent disbandment of SARS by the FG backs the call for restructuring in Nigeria.

He recently revealed that since the government decided to not stick with SARS, it automatically means that Nigeria should be restructured to aid component parts of the nation to decide on what is best for them.

According to him, SARS getting scrapped tells us that the requirement of one state or region are not exactly the same with others, therefore each geo-political zone should be allowed to take their own actions.

He added that the South-West already started Amotekun, therefore the South-East and South-South should also be allowed to start their own preferred security outfit.

His words, “If the North says they want SARS, and the entire South-South, South-East and South-West say they don’t want, it is a reaffirmation of the urgent need for the restructuring of Nigeria that we have been talking about.

“It means that the requirement of one state or region are not exactly the same with others. This is the reaffirmation of the urgency of now and yesterday to urgently restructure Nigeria and allow each state and each geo-political zone to do things the way they deem fit.

“The South-West has started Amotekun, the South-East and South-South as well as the Middle Belt should start their own. This will not in any way means that Nigeria has balkanised. It simply means that like the United States of America, every state does its own thing its own way.”
