THE Peoples Democratic Party has accused the All Progressives Congress of frustrating genuine efforts aimed at restructuring Nigeria.
The party said this in a statement titled , ‘APC is frustrating genuine restructuring – PDP, insists on 2014 National Conference report’ , signed by its National Publicity Secretary , Kola Ologbondiyan , in Abuja on Tuesday .
It alleged that the APC was trying to manipulate the system and frustrate the widespread clamour and efforts by the majority of Nigerians for genuine restructuring .
The opposition party described plans by the APC to smuggle the partisan report of its committee on restructuring into the National Assembly to replace the 2014 National Conference Report , “ as an unpardonable assault on the sensibility of over 200 million Nigerians, whose collective interests are contained in the Conference report . ”
Ologbondiyan said , “ 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 . ”
