A CLEARER PICTURE: With the capitulation of Osibanjo, it is clear the talk about restructuring by the ruling APC, was a clear attempt to get gullible southern votes just the way, the anti-corruption fight has turned out to be the political vote winning strategy!
“Essentially, the APC Committee on True Federalism proposed the devolution of powers to the federating units and a measure of resource control. In line with this, it recommended state police, which is to operate “alongside the federal police” and each force with its own defined areas of authority. The committee views the current Exclusive Legislative List, which has 68 items, as a bastardisation of federalism. That is a good judgement. “https://www.google.com.ng/amp/s/punchng.com/apc-panel-report-on-restructuring/amp/
If the PDP under Jonathan said stealing is not corruption, for which he was shouted down, the APC under, the president’s media spokesman, Femi Adesina, has come out to say certificate forgery is not corruption!
“The Nigerian presidency on Tuesday said that the case of the alleged certificate forgery of the Honourable Minister of Finance Kemi Adeosun was not a corruption matter. “https://www.google.com.ng/amp/s/guardian.ng/news/adeosuns-alleged-certificate-forgery-not-a-corruption-matter-presidency/amp
PDP is political APC and APC is ideological PDP, for this reason both parties now play table tennis with their common factor…..the very politicians who are the table tennis ball they play over the net of the masses on Nigeria, The British Prime Minister, Mrs Theresa May, “however, stated that 87 million Nigerians were living below $1.90 a day, making Nigeria “home to more very poor people than any other nation in the world.”
The unfortunate table is Nigeria.
The way Jonathan capitulated as a yesman to the doves from the North, Osinbajo has capitulated as the yesman, to the Hawks from the same North.
AND BUHARI’S FOREIGN BUG FINALLY “BEAT” OSINBAJO
President Buhari has a reputation for making unguarded and controversial statements abroad, the first of which was his 97% to 5%, declaration, on July 22, 2015, at the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) where he said.
“I hope you have a copy of the election results. The constituents, for example, gave me 97% [of the vote] cannot in all honesty be treated on some issues with constituencies that gave me 5%.”
The president chose an institute of peace to make a statement of war!
Osinbajo waited to go abroad like his boss, before he dropped the bomb. He went and spoke in his capacity as the Vice President, repeating what Buhari had earlier said.
“President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday said all the groups clamouring for the restructuring of the country had their personal agenda.
He wondered if the constitution would allow such agenda.
Buhari spoke when he received a delegation of Urhobo Traditional Rulers, the leadership of the Urhobo Progressive Union and members of the All Progressives Congress from Delta State at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.”
It is now clear that Restructuring, was not the pregnancy the APC (perhaps Buhari’s APC) was carrying.
Osinbajo found himself between the two clearly different and divergent views of his two principals, on restructuring, he chose to go with the President, and by that he has moved away from the progressives.
A political answer who have taken the deceptive position of the party, as expressed by the El-Rufai report, but as it is, the runway the report should have landed on has been blown off by the President and his vice and when an aircraft runs out of fuel, with no runway to land on, the only option is a crash!
The was what happened to true federalism under Buhari APC!
