The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP challenges APC (All Progressives Congress) leaders to respond concerning President Muhammadu Buhari’s “decision” to renege on his restructuring campaign.
PDP challenges APC: The bone of contention
PDP said its challenge followed Senate spokesperson’s comment, Senator Ajibola Basiru, who said restructuring as promised by the APC was only a “slogan”.
Kola Ologbondiyan, the PDP National Publicity Secretary, dared APC Caretaker Chairman, Governor Mai Mala Buni, National Leader, Bola Tinubu, Governors Nasir el-Rufai and Kayode Fayemi, Ministers Rotimi Amaechi and Lai Mohammed to speak out on the matter.
PDP noted that APC’s inaction on 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 almost six years, the Buhari presidency, which has made no substantial effort towards forwarding an executive bill to the legislature, asked Nigerians to carry their burden to the federal lawmakers.
Ologbondiyan told the APC to take responsibility for national unity challenges, having failed to fulfil the promises they made on restructuring such as devolution of power and true federalism.
Therefore, the PDP challenges APC to counter its position and urges President Buhari to formulate an executive bill on restructuring.
