Bolaji Abdullahi

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the delay by the current Federal government to restructure Nigeria was due to the nagging problems of insecurity and recession being experienced in the country.

 The Party’s National Publicity Secretary, Malam Bolaji Abdullahi who stated this yesterday in a chat with The Guardian, said the issue of restructuring may be prioritised by the government before 2019.

“My own take is that every government has its own priority and you will agree with me that if you have to deal with the issue of Boko Haram or you need to deal with the issue of the economy that has gone into recession and all that, you have to get your priorities right. I don’t think it will be a wise move to add the challenges of restructuring if you have not dealt with the problems that affect the average Nigerian,” Abdullahi said.

“The issue of restructuring is never a gimmick. It is in the manifesto of our party. How can that be a gimmick? That is why I said that the fact that it has not been done does not mean it would not be done,” he added.
