The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Saturday challenged leaders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to make clarification on restructuring promise made by President Muhammadu Buhari during campaign in 2015
PDP was reacting to the comment made by Senate spokesperson, Senator Ajibola Basiru, who said restructuring promised by the APC was only a “slogan”.
Speaking on the matter, Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, dared APC Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni and other leaders of the party like Bola Tinubu and Kayode Fayemi.
PDP noted that APC’s lukewarm attitudeson restructuring and declaration by the Buhari presidency that Nigerians should channel their demands to the National Assembly validates the belief that the party only wanted power in 2015.
The opposition said it was disappointing that for Buhari presidency, has not made serious efforts on restructuring after six years.
“Our party asserts that beside President Buhari, other bigger culprits of the failure on restructuring are the silent leaders of the APC who, despite promising restructuring, are clandestinely supportive of its huge betrayal.”
Ologbondiyan told the APC to take responsibility for challenges to national unity, having failed to fulfil the promises they made on restructuring such as devolution of power and true federalism.
“We are already aware of plots by certain APC leaders to recourse to condemning President Buhari as being singularly responsible for the failures of his administration and use such a narrative to beguile Nigerians again with another round of fake promises on restructuring.”
