PDP to boy­cott APC’s hear­ing on restruc­tur­ing

Sunday Trust - - NEWS - By Saawua Terzungwe

The Peo­ples’ Demo­cratic Party (PDP) has said it would not par­tic­i­pate in the rul­ing All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) pub­lic hear­ing on restruc­tur­ing. The PDP ar­gued that the de­ci­sion was di­ver­sion­ary and a de­lay tac­tics. Speak­ing with news­men yes­ter­day at the PDP head­quar­ters in Abuja, shortly af­ter a del­e­ga­tion from China vis­ited the lead­er­ship of the party, PDP spokesman, Prince Dayo Adey­eye, said the party will not par­tic­i­pate “be­cause the APC has no gen­uine in­ter­est in restruc­tur­ing”.

“It is a de­lay tac­tic to kill restruc­tur­ing and we are not in­ter­ested, we are not go­ing to par­tic­i­pate be­cause the APC has no gen­uine in­ter­est in restruc­tur­ing. They be­trayed their real in­ten­tions. When this is­sue first reached the front burner, the APC lead­ers were cam­paign­ing against it, kick­ing against it. They said it was not in their man­i­festo.

“Their na­tional chair­man and one of their governors came on tele­vi­sion and said that the APC had no plans for restruc­tur­ing, that it was not in their man­i­festo. So why have they now changed their mind?
