I had already seen your article on Premium Times. You sure made me laugh as you tried real hard to sound technical while responding to Prof. Osinbajo. Your article is less than watery, if there's anything like that, and I will show you why. Stay with me.
The issue 'of "geographical restructuring" isn't a new/vague concept created by Prof. Osinbajo. In his response earlier today. He explained it as creation of states, or going back to regionalism. He even cited the 2014 confab report that recommended the creation of 18 more states
which would obviously lead to more administrative costs.

How you, @atiku, ignored that and claimed that Prof. was vague with the "geographical restructuring" concept is beyond me.
