Ayodele said: “If INEC doesn’t postpone the general elections, it will not hold in some places and it will lead to an inconclusive election. There are some people who will sabotage the election in those places.
“Nigeria cannot move forward without restructuring, God said that is the answer to Nigeria’s problems, not elections. If Nigeria doesn’t do restructuring in the coming dispensation, the country will collapse and what we don’t expect will happen.
“If we want Nigeria to be united, restructuring is the answer. I also foresee a massive protest against the government in the coming dispensation if restructuring isn’t done.
“None of the candidates can get the solution to the country, all the campaigns are lies. The best bet for the country is restructuring.’’
