APC reacts to Buhari's statement on restructuring.

The All Progressive Congress has corrected the misconception regarding Buhari's statement on restructuring of Nigeria. 

The president of Nigeria, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari was misquoted during his address to the nation on New Year's day as rejecting the bid of Nigerians and stakeholders to restructure Nigeria. 

APC spokesperson, Bolaji Abdullah, said in an interview with the press, "From this address, we are not able to reach the conclusion that the President has rejected restructuring”.

During the broadcast, Mr. President said he believes Nigeria's major issues are not as the result of any defect in the structure of the country. He said they could be resolved by just checking the abuse of process and corruption. 

In his words, 
When all the aggregates of nationwide opinions are considered, my firm view is that our problems are more to do with process than structure,” the president said. “No human law or edifice is perfect.”

The president said Nigeria will continue to operate it's current presidential process but will listen to ideas on how curb the penetration of corruption into the system. 

This statements were misunderstood by some individuals they voiced out calling out the president to either explain what he meant or change his stance on the issue. The situation was however well managed by the ruling party as their spokesperson has come out to butress the point Mr. President was try to make. He said
Rather, we are delighted to hear the President sharing the views of Nigerians that every (system) needs to be periodically reviewed in the context of emerging social and economic circumstances,” Mr. Abdullahi said.
“By saying that the major problem is with processes rather than systems, he appears only to (be) telling us to bear in mind that no matter the choices we make on restructuring, it is how we manage our systems that would ultimately give us the kind of country we want to build.
“Quite significantly, by saying the government welcomes all ideas on how to make the country better, he has opened the door to all conversations including those on restructuring.
“Rather than serve as evidence of rejection therefore, we believe Mr. President’s speech has shown a significant disposition towards the idea of restructuring, which remains a cardinal philosophy of our party”.
