The South-East chapter of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Saturday described the report submitted by the Mallam Nasir El-Rufai-led committee on true federalism as one stop solution to the problems facing Nigeria. In a statement made available by the party’s publicity secretary, Hon. Hycienth Ngwu, he said the implementation of the report would address issues of agitations across the country. The APC spokesman appealed to Nigerians not to politicize the report by engaging in unnecessary debate but to partner with the government towards its full implementation.
While commending the committee, “for a good job,” he said, “the report is indeed a true reflection of the yearnings of the majority of Nigerians. And it has proved beyond all reasonable doubt that the All Progressives Congress (APC) is determined to give (us) Nigerians the real and positive change it promised us. “We believe that if the issues raised in the report are not politicized by the vocal few Nigerians, thereby subjecting the report to unnecessary debate with the intent to cause delay in its implementation, Nigerians would experience harmonious co-existence in atmosphere of peace and robust economic prosperity.
“We hereby appeal to the entire members of the other political parties and civil society groups to be nationalistic in their comments and views on this report. This shouldn’t be seen as APC affair, but Nigerian’s affair. We all must be committed to end these agitations.”
