The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) 2019 presidential hopeful, Senator David Mark, has insisted that restructuring of Nigeria is an idea whose time has come.
Contrary to the notion that Senator Mark was capitalizing on the populist agenda, the former Senate President in a statement by his media aide, Paul Mumeh, said he had listened and galvanized the views of various ethnic nationalities in Nigeria and submitted that restructuring is now.
According to him: “It is understandable that the APC would accuse me of being a new convert to restructuring in view of their many failed promises to the Nigerian people. I will not make promises like them. My antecedent over the years, especially during my tenure as Senate President is a testimony that I will always act in the nation’s best interest.”
He stressed: “My position is anchored on the feedback from Nigerians, and as a leader, in my own right, I have to act in consonance with the wishes of people.
“My experience in the last few years shows that a leader is only effective if he listens to the people. The issues of insecurity and the dwindling economic fortune of Nigeria makes it imperative that something has to be done by way of restructuring.
“Rarely has our country been faced with such a state of uncertainty, despair, suspicion, and division. If restructuring is the answer, why not now?
“I am a pan-Nigerian, I believe in the sanctity of our unity. Anything that will unite and prosper Nigeria would be my interest and concern. I believe restructuring is the way to go.
“For once, Nigerians across the geopolitical zones and various ethnic nationalities are of the consensus and indeed united on the subject, restructuring.
“I believe restructuring if anchored on fairness, equity and justice would strengthen our bond of brotherhood and unity. I will always act in the nation’s best interest.
“It is incontrovertible that my eight-year tenure as President of the Senate witnessed stability and unity in the contemporary history of Nigerian politics because we acted in tandem with the wishes and aspirations of the people,” he added.
