Going further, Umahi sent a message to President Muhammadu Buhari that he should allow more powers to states

A message has been sent to the federal government by Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi. The governor claimed that the country will enjoy relative peace if it is restructured in a way that one vice-president will represent each geo-political zone.

Umahi says the country should have six vice-presidents one from each region.

He disclosed this when he spoke on Monday, June 14.

Umahi said the adoption of six vice-presidents will be a major step towards restructuring the country, The Cable added.

He said:

“Well, I have a different view about this restructuring thing. My position about restructuring — for example: there are certain valid suggestions that have been made, to have six vice-presidents in the country.”

“Each one is kind of coming from each of the geo-political zones. Tension will go down. This is very important.”

Nigeria witnessing violence associated with war

In another report, the speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has said the growing security crises across Nigeria can be likened to war.

Gbajabiamila also warned that if the situation continues unabated, the country might just be living on borrowed time. He, however, stated that recent recommendations by the parliament would be transmitted to President Muhammadu Buhari for further action.

The speaker was referring to the recent Special Summit on National Security organised by the House of Representatives.

President Buhari must show commitment to restructuring.
