PDP backs restructuring, says it’s unavoidable
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has lent its voice to the call for restructuring the country, saying it is high time a critical look is taken on how the structures and institutions in the country operate.
The party also advocates for strong institutions but said such institutions should not serve the whims and interests of people in government.
This was canvassed Wednesday at a press conference by the Chairman of the PDP National Caretaker Committee, Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
The party noted that now that democracy has, for the first time survived for close to two decades, a critical look at areas that need improvement is imperative.
“We, however, observe the restructuring could mean a different thing to different people. It is therefore important that we consider the framework within which we can even discuss and be on the same page as to what kind of restructuring we mean or desire; and if nationally accepted, agree on frame work for its implementation,” Makarfi stated.
