Incumbent Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, says the All Progressive Congress is still committed to its promises of restructuring Nigeria.
Fayemi said this in an interview with journalists in Lagos on Sunday as part of activities to herald the celebration of the second year of his second term in office.
The Chairman of the Nigerian Governors’ Forum noted the party had set up the El-Rufai committee to make recommendations to its leadership.
According to him, the panel has since submitted its report and “concrete steps had been made to make proposals to the National Assembly.”
He also said the Senator Ovie Omo-Agege -led Senate Committee on the Review of the Constitution would soon commence its activities and was sure to capture relevant recommendations for legislative action.
Fayemi said, “True federalism is the answer,” to most of the challenges Nigeria is grappling with at the moment. He noted that the onus is on the National Assembly to look at the previous reports of national conferences.
He said many recommendations along the line of restructuring, devolution and true federalism were embedded in the reports of the Niki Tobi Panel, the 2004 Conference set up by former President Olusegun Obasanjo and the 2014 conference established by former President Goodluck Jonathan.
