Sagay challenges Buhari on need for restructuring



The chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption, Prof. Itse Sagay, SAN, has said the president’s stand that the country only needs processing and not restructuring is not good enough.

Sagay said the country will be better under restructuring as much as processing is also needed.

Prof. Itse Sagay also reiterated his stand on those criticising the President over board appointments of six dead persons saying critics are raising dust over an irrelevant matter.


Sagay said Nigeria needs both restructuring and processing to make headway. He said: “I think we need both restructuring and processing. We need processing which is what we are doing now, we also need restructuring. In that respect, I disagree with the president.”

On the board appointments of six dead individuals, he said: “I have already said it. Are you going to send doctors every week to check whether people are alive? If after two years, some people died before appointment, you replace them. We don’t have to look for every little thing to waste our time on and be disagreeable about.That is what I am saying. People should learn between what is important and what is not.” “This is certainly not important, it is absolutely irrelevant. People are trying to look for blame and raise trouble over nothing. That is the point I am making. I referred to it as Lilliputian behaviour where two states go to war over which side of the egg to crack before eating, it is unimportant. When you have six people dead, you appoint others to replace them; it is not a big deal,” he concluded.
