Yakubu Gowon, former Military Head of State, has asserted that the current composition of Nigeria makes it impossible for the country to be restructured.
Gowon explained that Nigeria is made up of over 500 ethnic groups and equal number of ideas about restructuring; therefore, instead of agitating for restructuring, the people must have faith in the indivisibility of the country .
Speaking in Minna, Niger State; Gowon further noted that most states will frown at the option of merging with other states for the proposed restructuring into regions to occur.
He said, "Nigeria is made up of over 500 ethnic groups, languages and dialects and so many various groups called nationalities and they want restructuring. This restructuring everybody is asking for, we will have about 500 different ideas of restructuring.
"There is call for restructuring to reduce the number of states to only a few either back to the old region or to the zones.
"Those are some of the ideas that I do not know whether it will be possible for any state today to wish to be merged with another state. Let us see whether our politicians will see guidelines to be able to achieve what they want.
"But I have my problem whether the states will be financially capable to they will be able to run there states properly."
