A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, Ayodele Kusamotu, has berated the party leadership for its nonchalant attitude towards restructuring.
In a statement he signed and issued on Wednesday in Lagos, Kusamotu urged the party’s hierarchy not to take Nigerians for granted, noting that restructuring of Nigeria is the wish of the people.
He said further that the clamour for the country to be restructured was an issue that many within the party have always called for.
According to him, the clamour will not stop even if the party leadership ignores it.
The APC chieftain pointed out that the appointment of Kaduna State Governor, Nasir el-Rufai, as the party’s chairman of the committee on restructuring was ironic, arguing that the governor has been in full support of the restructuring.
Kusamotu urged the party to gauge the pulse of the people to avoid losing the goodwill and sympathy it enjoyed in the last general elections.
He, however, urged APC to give more attention to “internal democracy and participatory democratic process that see all card-carrying members of the party as stakeholders whose voices must be heard.”
