Feyamo faults Atiku’s restructuring promise

Spokesman of the Muhammadu Buhari Presidential Campaign Organization, Festus Keyamo, has said that the vow by the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar to restructure Nigeria in six months is the “biggest lie”.

Atiku, seeking to become Nigeria’s next president, is using restructuring as one of his campaign promises.

Both aspirants launched their campaigns on Sunday.

Speaking on Atiku’s policy documents and its plan, Keyamo told Channels TV on Monday: “In the campaign manual, the president has not said that he will object to a constitutional amendment.”

He added “He has not engaged in a deceitful nature to say I want to restructure when he knows he cannot in six months.

“Anybody that tells you that restructuring is something that should be done outside the amendment of the constitution is a lie. Restructuring is about the devolution of powers, fiscal federalism. You cannot do that without amending the constitution.

“We call it the restructuring farce by the opposition. It is a farce because there is a clear procedure in the constitution for amending the constitution.

“So, anybody that comes and says I want to restructure Nigeria in 6 months, in one year, Nigerians should know that it is the biggest lie that they are telling them right now.
