The Leading Opposition Party in the country, (PDP) has played down the report of All Progressive Congress (APC) on restructuring says it’s a ploy to deceive voters ahead of 2019
its described the report as a grand design by the “Failed” President Mohammadu Buhari-led government to divert public attention from the woes of a worsening economy, relentless killings, corruption and endless litany of afflictions occasioned by their almost three years of “Dysfunctional governance.”
In a statement on Wednesday, PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan said it amounts to outright depravity that the same APC leaders who on assumption of office, rejected restructuring would suddenly embrace same barely a year to the 2019 general elections.
The PDP said the fact that the APC has not the littlest intention of implementing any form of restructuring is completely manifest in the attitude and body language of its leaders including President Buhari, who in his 2018 new year address, rejected the idea of restructuring, by declaring that “When all the aggregates of nationwide opinions are considered, my firm view is that our problems are more to do with process than structure.
“Even Kaduna State governor, Mallam Nasir El-Rufai, who eventually became the Chairman of the APC panel on restructuring, had also on June 29, 2017, during an interview on Channels TV, denied that the APC promised to restructure and described Nigerians, who were taking his party to task on the issue, as political opportunists and irresponsible people.
“This is in addition to the declaration by the Minister of Information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, who on a Radio Nigeria (FRCN) interview programme on June 9, 2017, stated that restructuring is not President Buhari’s priority.
