Only NASS can handle restructuring – Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari yesterday said only the National Assembly could deal with the contentious issue of restructuring, true federalism or devolution of powers since they are constitutional matters.

President Buhari said this while receiving members of the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) led by its co-chairmen and Sultan of Sokoto, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and president of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), The Rev Dr Samson Supo Ayokunle, at the State House, Abuja.

President Buhari assured that efforts were already on to create a more conducive environment to address both direct and indirect causes of challenges, including job creation and employment generation.

In their comments, the Sultan and the president of the CAN advised the federal government to fund the armed forces better to confront the myriad of security challenges facing the country.
