APC did not Promise Restructuring – National Chairman



John Odigie-Oyegun

The National Chairman of the ruling party All Progressives Congress (APC) John Odigie-Oyegun has said that the party made no promises to restructure the country during its presidential campaign.

He has said that the word was purposely avoided, and the words used instead were devolution and true federalism, and even those are not of priority right now.

Odigie-Oyegun, according to Vanguard, said that the priority of the party is to fix the economy and provide jobs.

“If you want to know where APC is, read through the manifesto and that is where APC stands. The APC did not say restructuring.

“What is more important? To fix the economy or to embark on this political issue with all the contentious and different interpretations that the public gives to it? It is very specific in the manifesto, and we are not going to renege on it. No question about that.

“It is contentious, and a lot of people talk about restructuring without any commonality. We have stated clearly what we want to do. They are devolution and true federalism. We really avoided the word restructuring because it means so many things to so many people. We are coming to that but our priority for now, for today is to fix the economy and restore hope, provide jobs to the teeming millions of our youths all over the country. So it is a matter of priority.’’

    The apc chairman should call ministers to stop placing one religion above the others thereby creating controversy and blackmailing our president.The ministers are due for swapping.our founding fathers were aware of plurality of religion.what our father could not do to place one religion over another will be naive and total failure for any ministers any professors whether tested or not since professorship is based on standard of each university.To become professor in unibadan is not a joke abd oau.
    It is high time we recognise erudite professors of integrity like prof Dibu ojerind of Oau, prof fajemirokun, prof Abas, prof Ayeni, prof Gbadeya, prof Bajoga, Prof Adamu baikie and the likes and not those that became vc due to religious manipulations and their conscience will be their judge to play advisory role.Ghana has two main religion not changing curricula like Nigeria. We can not be toying with our curricula.This is a lesson.
