Abstract
The demand on education as a veritable tool for the actualisation of a country’s need and aspiration is founded on comparative and historical analysis of what education has done for other countries. Comparatively, this may not be necessary because the happenings and conditionings in the classroom and the education system are all functions of a country’s cultural values. Education, as an instrument of social change, is to clarify the issues of ethnicity and restructuring so that the learner could decipher all the happenings around him based on reason, not to blindly join the bandwagon in the name of solidarity. The role of education, therefore, in ethnicity and restructuring debate in Nigeria is to foster unity, social integration and development, not to engage in any form of vices. Education Encourages good things, how they could be attained, and fosters the internal qualities in every man.

Keywords: Education, Ethnicity, Political Restructuring, Nigeria, Leadership

Introduction
The central focus of this paper is based on the premise that: not until the major moving forces of a phenomenon and
their direction of motion are identified, it would be difficult to evolve sustainable solutions to problems posed by that phenomenon. Solutions are either designed to eliminate such forces or, at least, to change their motion to a desirable direction. However, the resultant outcome may not necessarily be what is expected, but such outcome,
to a very large extent, must represent what needs to be done. The search for sustainable solution to issues of national unity, national consciousness, social integration, nationalism and patriotism in Nigeria is a difficult one because these issues have defiled all efforts, legislations, and solutions put in place (Ojiako, 1981; Nnoli, 1978). It is either we are not sincere to the values we share as a people or efforts put in place only placate the situation (Ireyefoju, 2017). It is no longer news that Nigeria consists of different ethnic nationalities brought together by the British colonialists to satisfy their economic interest back at home (Osokoya, 2010).
