    The National Body of the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR) on Saturday August 19 warned that Nigeria as a country will  harvest the implications of not addressing the issue of restructuring if she fails to do same.
    CDHR National Chairman, Mr. Malachy Ugwumma Esq handed down the warning at the ongoing Leadership Conference organized by the Delta State
    Chapter of the CDHR in Udu Local Government Area of Delta State.
    “If we don’t deal with it now, we will harvest the implications of not
    addressing it.”
    Ugwumma stated that the over concentration of too much powers at the
    centre is not in consonance with federalism all over the world.
    “Until you deconstruct and reduce the powers at the centre and allow
    the federating units to have and muster enough momentum and introduce
    that healthy competition as to respond to the immediate concerns of
    their locality, until you do that, you are talking about federalism”
    Ugwumma noted that 68 unwilthy items in Executive Legislative Bill
    Including issues that Local Government can ordinarily do it.
    Ugwumma stressed that the unwilthy items have overwhelmed the super
    structures of the Nigerian state.
    Former National Chairman of the CDHR, Prof. Lucky Akaruese in a chat
    with AUTHENTIC News Daily also stated that those opposed to restructuring of the country are only making violent change inevitable.
    The University  Don noted that the minimum demand is “restructuring”
    to fix the myriads of problems in the country stressing however that,
    self-determination is the maximum for same.
    Prof. Akaruese explained the needs for restructuring especially for
    the component parts of the country to have freedom to their destinies
    to determine and advance themselves to compete favourably and become
    part of human civilization.
    “Restructuring is the minimum demand otherwise the maximum demand is
    self-determination of all the different ethnic groups to be part of
    the federation.”
