Professor Pat Utomi has called for the decentralisation of Nigeria’s government, saying such a move will move the government closer to Nigerians.
Pat revealed this during his keynote address at the 50th anniversary of the country’s Civil War organized by the Nzuko Umunna and Ndigbo in Lagos.
According to him, it would aid an effective government from our politicians.
He added that the problems that caused the Civil War must be addressed for the betterment of our future.
His words, “Government should be decentralised and moved closer to the people for effectiveness.”
“We must address the issues that led to the Civil War. I can tell you that if the Biafran war is fought today, there will be no Nigeria because the international community now recognises self-determination.”
