Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Zakariyya Adaramola

The Com­pan­ion, a group of Mus­lim pro­fes­sion­als has per­fected plans for a na­tional di­a­logue on the de­sir­abil­ity or other­wise of re­struc­tur­ing the Nige­rian fed­er­a­tion.

The group took the de­ci­sion to hold the dis­course on re­struc­tur­ing yes­ter­day, in Abuja, at its Ex­panded Na­tional Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil (NEC) meet­ing, which drew del­e­gates from its dis­tricts na­tion­wide.

The con­fab, billed to take place in Lagos on Oc­to­ber 24, will be the 4th in the se­ries by The Com­pan­ion, an as­so­ci­a­tion of Mus­lim men in busi­ness and other pro­fes­sions.

Bar­ris­ter Musi­bau Oye­feso, Na­tional Amir (pres­i­dent) of the as­so­ci­a­tion, who presided over the NEC meet­ing, said the pro­posed na­tional dis­course “is The Com­pan­ion’s mod­est con­tri­bu­tion to help chart the course for good gov­er­nance in Nige­ria and har­mo­nious co-ex­is­tence among its peo­ple.”
