What Will Happen To Some States In The South-East If Nigeria Is Restructured – Olabode George

Published by admin on

Chief Olabode George, a former Deputy National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, has shared his perspective on the need for restructuring Nigeria to foster bottom-up development.

George emphasized that this approach, similar to California’s model in the United States, could transform some states in the South-East into economic powerhouses.

Drawing a parallel with California’s economic significance, George highlighted the potential of restructuring to elevate certain South-Eastern states to a level comparable to the world’s fifth-largest economy.

He also pointed out that California’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP) surpasses that of all African countries.

His statements reads;
“Development should be bottom-up, not the other way round. That is why if California, a state in the United States (US.), were a sovereign nation, it would rank in terms of nominal Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as the world’s fifth largest economy behind Japan and ahead of India. In fact, the state of California has a larger GDP than that of all African countries.”

He added; “If we restructure, some states in the South-East can become our own California. We must also reform our judicial and electoral systems. In many political cases, millions of people believe, and rightly so, that some judges deliver Judgements, NOT Justice. Believe it or not, this is part of the insecurity in the land. Also, the last three elections in the country were nothing to write home about”
