The National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Senator Ahmed Makarfi Sunday, said that the party was not against restructuring, but there should a debate on what should be restructured.
Makarfi, who spoke in an interview with Vanguard, said, “Because it (restructuring) means different things to different people, there is a need to sit down and build consensus on what is generally acceptable to the people, the modalities, nature and time frame should be clearly spelt out.”
“The fact that people see it differently means that something is wrong. But there is a need to commonly agree on what needs to be restructured, be it economic, institutional or political. There’s a need for us to respect one another,” he said.
On calls for 2014 confab report implementation, Makarfi maintained that the National Assembly had a key role to play as representatives of the people.
He said, “If the National Assembly requests for it and it is forwarded to them, there is nothing wrong with it. People must understand that there are processes and steps to be followed.”
