El-Rufai Leads APC Committee On Restructuring

El-Rufai Leads APC Committee On Restructuring

The party's National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, made this known in a statement.

Yari said this while talking with journalists on the inability of the APC National Working Committee to hold a national convention to fill some vacant positions in the party's national executive.

The statement said, "The All Progressives Congress (APC) notes that with various agitations on restructuring, the concept has assumed several disparate meanings".

Members of the committee include four other state governors - Rauf Aregbesola (Osun), Abdullahi Ganduje (Kano), Simon Lalong (Plateau) and Ibikunle Amosun (Ogun).

The National Chairman of the APC, John Odigie-Oyegun, had last month said the party's promise to devolve more power to the states and adopt the principles of true federalism as enunciated in its manifesto did not amount to restructuring.

The rest are former Governor of Edo, Prof.

Others are APC National Organising Secretary, Sen.

The ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, has stated that President Muhammadu Buhari's health condition and his subsequent medical vacation in London, United Kingdom is largely responsible for the delay in holding its mid-term non elective convention.

"Let me say it is a wake-up call on how to deal with things like that in future".

It remains to be seen how the head of the team, El-Rufai, who only recently tagged Nigerians demanding for restructuring as hypocritical and irresponsible, would manage to convince people of the sincerity and seriousness of the committee's mission. "So this committee that is setup that will now be chaired by the governor of Kaduna is mainly to define what APC means by restructuring, so that every member will know what we exactly mean".

He said: "We have been on this matter of convention but you know that as a party, the President is the leader of this party".

According to Gov. Yari, the governors and party leadership have not also been able to meet with the acting President, Yemi Osinbajo, due to his tight schedules both as Vice President and as Acting President.

He explained that APC had no plan to make the country a one-party state or to work against the PDP as was being insinuated in some quarters. We discussed the issue of the relationship between the governors and the National Assembly and the need to have this meeting between the principal officers of the National Assembly, the governors and the party.

"Therefore, the judgment of the Supreme Court does not in any way affect the APC; we are rather, happy about it, " Yari said.

Yari explained that PDP's problem was from its fold, and not from the APC or its leadership as was being speculated.
