Nigerians have berated the vice presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Kashim Shettima, over his past comment on restructuring.
Several Nigerians including ethnic organizations like the Ohanaeze Ndigbo and the Afenifere have demanded the restructuring of Nigeria, saying it was the way to resolve many of the challenges facing the country.

Based on the clamor, the ruling APC set up a committee headed by Governor Nasir El-rufai of Kaduna State to review the various restructuring calls.

Applesbite earlier reported that Shettima had condemned those clamoring for restructuring during an event in November 2017.

The former Governor of Borno State stated that the clamor for restructuring can be stopped by good governance, saying “to hell with restructuring.”

Shettima said that if jobs are provided and other sectors of the economy, especially the education sector are developed, the clamor for restructuring will stop.

“People are talking about artificial intelligence, other nations are talking about nano technology or robotics engineering but unfortunately, the topical issue in Nigeria is restructuring. Restructuring my foot! To hell with restructuring.

“Let us improve on governance, let us work for the people, invest in education, create jobs for our people, this madness will stop,” he said.

However, some Nigerians have taken to the micro-blogging platform, Twitter to express their reactions to the development.
Below are some of the reactions.
