Bishop Ohilebo speaks on Nigeria’s restructuring

Anglican Bishop of the Diocese of Sabongida-Ora, in Edo State, Rt. Revd. Augustine Ohilebo, has said the much clamoured restructuring of the country will not bring about the anticipated economic, social or political growth and progress of Nigeria.

According to him, restructuring will only have an impact on the people, if other issues currently retarding the growth and development of the country were addressed.

He made the assertion on Tuesday, while delivering his charge at the third session of the eight synod of the diocese, entitled: “Let Us Rise Up and Build”, at the St. John’s Cathedral, Sabongida-Ora, Owan West Local Government Area of the state.

He disagreed with proponents of restructuring as a single solution to the country’s problems, because “whatever will not solve our problems should not be an issue of concern to us.”

He said: “Our take on this is that we, as individuals, should first restructure our attitude, thoughts, and everything that is not in agreement with the will of God. If not, even when there is devolution of power to states and local government or restructuring along the six geopolitical zones, it will not bring about economic, social or political growth and progress of the nation.

“Restructuring is not going to move the corrupt people and those looting our national treasury to a camp where it will just be them alone. Let us restructure our mindset and think about what unites us and not what divides us.”

He called on the Federal Government to work to meet the yearnings and aspirations of Nigerians, just as he urged politicians to shun self enrichment.

On the state of federal roads, he called on the Federal Ministry of Works, Housing and Power to give serious and urgent attention, as it would enhance economic development and security of lives and property.
