Popular Nigeria group, under the aegis of Southern and Middle Belt Leaders Forum, SMBLF has come out to say that our nation will die if there is no restructuring.

The leaders of the Middle- Belt, Ndi- Igbo Ohaneaze, the Pan Niger Delta Forum, PANDEF, South-South and Afenifere recently revealed this at Sheraton Hotels and Towers, Abuja, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to the ex Federal Commissioner for Information and South-South Leader, Chief Edwin Clark, there is need for urgent restructuring in Nigeria as the nation cannot progress as a nation without it.

He added that an important first step to take is to ensure the presidency goes to the South ahead of 2023 elections.
