PDP accuses APC of Frustrating calls for Restructuring, insists On 2014 National Conference Report

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP says it rejects the attempt by the All Progressives Congress, APC to manipulate the system and frustrate the widespread clamour and efforts by majority of Nigerians for a genuine restructuring.

The PDP in a tweet also described the plans by the APCN to ‘smuggle the partisan report of its committee on restructuring’ into the National Assembly to replace the 2014 National Conference Report,

The party considered it as an unpardonable assault on the sensibility of over 200 million Nigerians, whose collective interests are contained in the Conference Report.

The tweet read “Nigerians are also alerted of a fresh ploy by some ambitious APC leaders to blackmail the legislature and create an impression of commitment to restructuring, just to beguile the people and soften the ground for their personal political and particularly, presidential ambitions ahead of the 2023 elections”.

“Our party stands at the forefront of efforts for genuine restructuring, but we hold that the authentic materials for a genuine restructuring are contained in the 2014 National Conference report, wherein, Nigerians, across all the divides, collectively provided a road map out of our constitutional quagmires; and not a partisan report by the APC”

“It is therefore unacceptable that the 2014 National Conference report, which embodies the desires and hopes of over 200 million Nigerians, has been shelved by President @MBuhari, since his predecessor in office, President Goodluck Jonathan, personally handed it over to him in 2015 for implementation in line with the wishes and aspirations of the people”.

“Our party therefore charges President @MBuhari to bring out the 2014 National Conference Report, dust it up and present it as an executive bill to the @nassnigeria to guide the desired amendment to the 1999 Constitution (as amended) with regard to restructuring”.

“The partisan whims of one party, in a multi-party country of over 200 million people, cannot override the decisions that were meticulously reached by majority of Nigerians at a National Conference” PDP insisted.

The PDP said Nigerians are only interested in restructuring of the country in the areas of true federalism, devolution of powers, electoral reforms and unbundling of critical items in the exclusive list.
