Proposed Report of Restructuring Is Not Acceptable by Me – Prof. Ango Abdullahi


The Spokesperson of the Northern Elders Forum, Prof Ango Abdullahi has totally rejected the proposed restructuring report from El-Rufai.  He makes it clear as the leader of the most powerful group in the north that restructuring must be rejected.

 “APC is not Nigeria, or Nigerians. It is a political party. The party is only expressing its opinion on behalf of its members. I question it because the exercise they undertook in terms of consultations around the country, were talking to their party members, especially the leaders of their party. I don’t accept that the report of El-Rufai committee truly reflects the position of APC members as a whole, let alone reflecting the position of Nigerians.

“I think that is beyond us to believe that its recommendations are sacrosanct. I don’t think they should be. Consultations should continue in terms of what Nigeria should be and should not be, and every Nigerian has a stake to contribute to his opinion on this matter. I don’t see why we are rushing over it. This country has been in existence for over 100 years during colonial rule, and has been in existence for nearly 60 years after our independence, and there have been many constitutional conferences in the country; there have been also talks and consultations in terms of how to govern.
