Restructuring Now: we’re tired of 1999 constitution, North shocks Tinubu


In a significant development, the governor of Zamfara State has expressed support for restructuring Nigeria’s political, economic, and administrative frameworks. This endorsement marks a notable shift in the northern region, historically resistant to such changes.

Restructuring aims to reexamine and potentially reform the nation’s systems, addressing critical issues like resource allocation, regional autonomy, and constitutional amendments. Proponents believe restructuring could ensure a fairer distribution of resources, empower regional governance, and enhance overall administration. However, detractors caution about the challenges of transitioning and the effects on current power dynamics.

The governor’s stance indicates a growing recognition, even in traditionally opposed areas, of the need for systemic change.

Spotlight on State Policing
State policing involves establishing local law enforcement agencies in each state, supplementing the centralized federal police force. Supporters argue that state policing would boost community-focused policing, improve response times, and better address local law enforcement needs.

Critics, however, raise concerns about possible duplication of efforts, coordination challenges, and the risk of politicization at the state level. Given Zamfara State’s severe security issues, such as kidnapping and banditry, a more localized police force might offer substantial benefits.

Balancing Preferences: Restructuring vs. State Policing
While you’ve indicated a preference for restructuring, it’s crucial to weigh both options. Restructuring could resolve broader systemic problems, whereas state policing would directly enhance local security.

The choice between restructuring and state policing depends on Nigeria’s specific context, priorities, and long-term goals. Each option presents unique advantages and challenges that must be carefully considered.
