Founder of Afe Babalola University (ABUAD), Chief Afe Babalola, has said problems confronting the nation will be solved, if President Muhammadu Buhari could restructure the constitution and revert to true federalism in his second term.

He said restructuring of Nigeria is the only solution to end underdevelopment of the country.

Babalola, who stated this in a message to Nigerians and particularly to the new President Buhari-led administration on Democracy Day anniversary, urged the people and the Federal Government to adopt the biblical injunction to ‘first seek the Kingdom of God and its righteousness and all other things will follow.’

The Senior Advocate of Nigeria said time it was when the naira was stronger than the Dollar. He said, indeed, at some point in the past, it was 95k (less than N1) to $1, but now it is N365 to $1.

The legal luminary said begging, which used to be an abomination has become the order of the day in the society.
