The All Progressive Congress (APC) has disputed misgivings about its commitment to fulfilling campaign promise during the 2019 election.
The Party and its candidate, Muhammadu Buhari during the campaign at the last general election had promised next level and restructuring of the country.
The ruling APC said contrary to misgivings in some quarters about its commitment to fulfilling its campaign promise of restructuring the country, steps so far taken by President Muhammadu Buhari towards the implementation of the report of 2014 National Conference and the report of the Nasir El-Rufai-led APC committee on true federalism was enough proof that restructuring has begun.
This was stated in the September edition of the in-house monthly magazine of the APC, The Progressive. The write-up was titled, “Calm Down! Restructuring has begun.”
According to this write-up, billions of taxes had been wasted by successive administrations to hold national conferences with the reports and recommendations of such conferences not implemented.
The publication said unlike previous attempts which yielded little or nothing, Buhari has taken steps to implement a part of the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference as well as those of the 2017 Governor Nasir El-Rufai-chaired APC committee on True Federalism, which came out with far-reaching recommendations.
It highlighted that President Buhari had implemented recommendations including poverty reduction and social inclusion as well as economic diversification.
“With these aforementioned fundamental reforms being introduced into the nation’s polity already in place, and with many more still in the pipeline, Nigeria under President Muhammadu Buhari is on the path of an irreversible political and economic rejuvenation. To the advocates of restructuring, calm down, the exercise has begun in earnest.”
