On the agitation by Yorubas, the ex-President disclosed that he recently understood that what most of the agitators wanted was devolution of powers.

“When I interviewed 12 persons on their understandings of what restructuring is all about, what I got was different. Some said they want three, four regions.

“Some said they want 12 states. I got to understand that all they were asking for is devolution of powers and this is not too much to ask for.”
