The Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party Governors Forum (PDP-GF), Aminu Tambuwal, has said Nigeria must embrace restructuring to survive.
Tambuwal, who is also the governor of Sokoto State, added that Nigeria must also embrace technology to tackle insecurity, unemployment and other problems confronting the country.
He stated this in his remarks at a two-day PDP National Retreat with the theme: “It’s time to rescue Nigeria”, held on Tuesday in Abuja.
“Nigeria must restructure its polity, economy, security and ways of doing things. It must embrace relative autonomy and decentralisation of power.
“This will unleash the energies of our people, especially the young. It is time to allow Nigeria to blossom. It is doable with all hands on deck.
“Secondly, we must embrace innovation and technology as a way of life. Technology will solve the youth unemployment time bomb.
“Technology will improve our agriculture, health, industrialisation, education and indeed, it has implications and impacts on all facets of our lives.
“It is in this respect that we continue to condemn the Twitter ban as a retrogressive action that should never have happened,” Tambuwal said.
He added that PDP remained the only credible alternative to the All Progressives Congress (APC) and could not afford to fail Nigerians.
“We must keep hope alive. We can do it. Yes, we can, as Obama would say.
