El-Rufai’s report: Why APC’s restructuring plan is Nigeria’s ‘biggest scam’ – PDP chieftain, Okolugbo


A member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Ken Okolugbo, has described the All Progressives Congress, APC, document on restructuring as Nigeria’s “biggest scam.”

Featuring on Channels Television, the PDP chieftain said the report presented by the Governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai is a ploy “to deceive Nigerians.”

Okolugbo said he doubted the implementation of the report because El-Rufai “does not believe in restructuring.”

According to Okolugbo, the report “coming from el-Rufai, is very distasteful.

“It is the biggest scam Nigerians have ever seen. By this time next year, you will see that APC would have done nothing on restructuring.

“I am hundred percent sure they will not implement it.

“The most painful aspect of it is the fact that the driver of this process, el-Rufai, was the same person that once said here in Channels TV studio that those people that were talking about restructuring were political opportunists who were only irresponsible and out to attract attention to themselves.

“So, the document is coming from a man that does not even believe in restructuring. If you look at the manifesto of APC, everything that they have done, they have wasted public funds as far as I am concerned.

“The truth about it is that all these things were in their manifesto – the same federalism we were talking about, the same resource control, state police, state electoral commissions having registers of their own. They talked about it in their manifesto.”
