Shehu Sani: Nobody should deceive anybody, there’ll be no restructuring before 2019 elections

Shehu Sani, the outspoken lawmaker representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly, says there will be no restructuring before the 2019 elections.

Sani, who made the comments via his Twitter handle on Sunday evening, said the leaders of the country should rather implement the reports of the several conferences that were held in the past.

“We either implement reports of previous conferences and committees or we keep producing duplicitous reports and wait for godot,” he said.

“Nobody should deceive anybody and nobody should deceive himself or herself; there will be no restructuring before 2019 elections.”

The All Progressives Congress (APC) promised Nigerians during the campaign for the 2015 general election that it would ensure that the issue of restructuring is looked into once it assumes power.



    However, more than two years after the party won the election, it has reneged on that promise.

    Femi Adesina, Special Assistant to the on Media and Publicity, told journalists after the President returned from a 103-day medical leave from London, that restructuring was not the priority of the federal government for now.

    “The National Chairman (of the APC) has said that restructuring is one of the things the party will do, but it’s not in the order of priority for now,” Adesina had said.

    “The priorities are: securing the country, reviving the economy and fighting corruption. Later, restructuring will come up.”
