We are laying solid foundation for restructuring – Tinubu

President Bola Ahmed Tinubu has said that his administration would lay a solid foundation before restructuring the country to foster proper federalism.

Shedding light on conditions for an overhaul, he explained that a proper foundation would involve carrying out successful economic and fiscal reforms capable of supporting a restructured country.

The president, who said his administration would not rush the process, stressed that restructuring should address the concerns for equity and justice.

President Tinubu spoke yesterday during his visit to Akure, the Ondo State capital.

He also visited Owo to commiserate with the family of the late former Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and the Olowo of Owo Oba Gbadegesin Ogunoye.

In Akure, he visited the leader of the Yoruba socio-cultural organisation Afenifere, Chief Reuben Fasoranti.

During his visit to the nonagenarian, the President, accompanied by former All Progressives Congress (APC) Interim National Chairman Chief Bisi Akande, also assured that his economic and political reforms will reposition the country.

He showed the Afenifere leader his Certificate of Return given to him by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) after winning the February 25, 2023 presidential election.

Pa Fasoranti’s address read by Oba Olu Falae, Olu of Ilu Aabo, Akure, hailed President Tinubu’s courage and sagacity, which made him implement the Oronsanye Report as the basis for reforming the Public Service.

He reminded him that he was the first Afenifere member to be elected President.

Fasoranti noted that the president’s performance reflected his understanding of the gravity of his mandate, “which is to show the Nigerian people that a good government is possible.”
