My Restructuring Agenda Is Intact, Says Atiku
The Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and former Vice President of Nigeria, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, has restated his commitment to restructuring of Nigeria.
Atiku, according to a report in NewDawn, made his position known in an interactive session with members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors in Lagos on Wednesday.
He said: “It is rather unfortunate that a section of the media reported my remarks at an event yesterday which casts doubts on my readiness to implement my restructuring agenda.
“Let me therefore use the opportunity of this gathering today with the gate keepers of the Nigerian media to say that my restructuring agenda is intact and it will be implemented from my first day in office.
“Already, I have received report from a team of constitutional law experts which I assembled to look into our constitution and highlight areas where there are items that can be moved to the concurrent and residual lists of the constitution.
“Let me tell you that I will start work on the implementation of that report from my very first day in office if I am elected president next year,” Atiku said.
