The territorial integrity of our dear nation remains unshakable, as the calls for restructuring are rather called for rejuvenation of the country. This paper titled: Social Security, Citizenship and Restructuring of Nigeria, seeks to strike at the root of discontents leading to the restructuring debate. As an academic discourse based on archival sources, with a tinge of historical analysis, it attempts at creating a link between the lack of social security on one hand, and the contradictions between statutory citizenship and citizenship as operationalized in Nigeria, on the other hand, and their implications on the human condition in Nigeria. It queries the alleged structural deficit of Nigerian nationhood against the fundamental tenets of federalism. With an exposition of the Restructuring Debate, within the threshold of social contract theory, it seeks to unravel the possibility of a befitting structure for corporate Nigeria, with lessons from the root.
