I’ll restructure Nigeria if elected into office ― Markafi
A presidential hopeful, Senator Ahmed Makarfi, has promised to Restructure Nigeria along three lines of political, economic and social structure if elected into power in 2019.
Makarfi who was former National Caretaker Committee Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said this in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Saturday, during a meeting with State Executive Committee and members of the party of his intention to contest for presidential seat.
He noted that only Restructuring would solve the myriads of challenges battling the country for even development while explaining that restructuring is not about politics alone.

Makarfi explained that social and economic restructuring would make public institutions responsible to the people and eliminate ethnic issue in the country, adding that social restructuring must make all government public agencies responsible and accountable to the people.
“If elected president in 2019, restructuring will be the first thing my government will look into for the even development of the country.
“The rate of death in Nigeria today is alarming. It is beginning to mean that when 50 people die, it is no longer news. We must ensure comprehensive security across the length and breadth of Nigeria,” he added.
He called for the decentralisation of the nation’s power sector in terms of generation, transmission and distribution networks stating that states that have the capacity to generate power would be given the advantage to do so.
