Yinka Odumakin, the spokesman of the Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere has said that President Buhari was in full support of restructuring in 2007.

Speaking to Daily Post, he said “In 2007, when Buhari agreed to restructuring, Afenifere backed him.

“It’s a plus. An election wants to hold and a candidate says I will restructure Nigeria and the other says we don’t believe in restructuring, we won’t implement the confab report, what do you expect?

“We are consistent. Check the records, I was the spokesman of Buhari/Bakare campaign. Go and check.

“The first item on their manifesto is restructuring of the Nigerian federation.
