The President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), on Friday, said he believes in devolving power to the people.
He, however, said the contentious issue of restructuring, true federalism or devolution of powers remains a constitutional matter which can only be dealt with by the National Assembly.
This was disclosed in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Friday.
According to Adesina, Buhari said this when he received members of the Nigerian Inter-Religious Council (NIREC) led by Co-Chairmen, Sultan of Sokoto, His Eminence, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar and President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), His Eminence, Rev. Dr. Samson Supo Ayokunle, at the State House in Abuja.
