Restructuring: It’s injustice to call unequal equal – ElRufai

 

By Bode Olagoke Abuja–

Kaduna state governor and chairman of All Progressives Congress (APC) Committee on True Federalism, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, has declared that it is an injustice to agitate for “equal unequal”, adding that in population and resources each region differs.

 

He, however, said though the representatives of the agitators are few in number, “the majority must always win.

 

” Speaking yesterday in Abuja at the town hall meeting organised by his committee to interface with the youths, the governor said one of the mistakes people were making about restructuring was that everyone thinks of his own and no one thinks for the country.

 

The much publicised event was, however, poorly attended by the youths, leaving the large auditorium of Merit House almost empty.

 

El-rufai, who blamed the poor attendance on social media, admitted that, “I wished more of them (youths) came but I recognise that more of them now communicate more in the virtual world than in the real world.

 

“Some many of them contacted us on the social media so, I am so far very happy with the participation of young people particularly when we went for out zonal hearings.

 

“The outing here in Abuja, is not as crowded as I expected, but I know they are following on social media.

 

We’ve received lots of memoranda from them on various social media platforms so we know we have a very fair idea of what the young people of Nigeria are thinking about the future of their country and we will refl ect that in our report,” he said.
