Boko Haram: Igbo leaders call for restructuring

TO halt what they perceive as an imminent slide into a failed state given the prevailing wind of insecurity in the country, Igbo leaders have called for restructuring of the polity into a true federal state before the next round of elections in 2015.

In separate interviews with Vanguard, the leaders, most of whom spoke against the backdrop of Senator Uche Chukwumerije’s comments that the Boko Haram insurgence was part of the North’s agenda to capture the presidency in 2015 as Niger Delta militancy paved the way for the South-South to produce the president now, said the country was sitting on a keg of gun powder without restructuring.
