The All Progressives Congress (APC) has inaugurated a committee to look into the need to restructure Nigeria.

This is coming on the heels of calls from carious groups in the country for restructuring.

You will recall that former President, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida (Rtd.) recently issued a statement calling for Nigeria's restructuring.

According to Daily Post, the issue was discussed when APC leaders met on Thursday, June 29, 2017, at the Imo state Governor’s Lodge in Abuja.

A source also said “Of course, we discussed the Anambra governorship election, especially the threat to the election by IPOB, and the leaders of the APC in the South-east who attended the meeting assured us that the boycott was not going to have any effect.”

The source also revealed that the committee will harmonise the APC’s position on the issue of restructuring.

Also speaking to newsmen, the APC chairman, Odigie Oyegun said “We discussed issues affecting the nation and the impact of the current wave of agitations across the country.

“We decided to strengthen the party. We decided that the kind of verbiage and incendiary statements by different groups were not good for the health of the nation and we decided that it had to stop.

“For that reason, we have taken certain measures, which I will not disclose here, to ensure that the basic and fundamental unity of this country is preserved while at the same time listening to whatever grievances anybody has to say.”

The minister of information and culture, Lai Mohammed had earlier said that restructuring is not in the agenda of Buhari’s administration.
