Buhari has no constitutional power to restructure Nigeria – Sen. Abu Ibrahim

A Senator from Katsina State, representing Katsina South, Sen. Abu Ibrahim has urged that President Muhammadu Buhari be left out of the clamour for restructuring in the country as he has no constitutional role to play in the matter.

He made the call in Abuja during his investiture as the National Patron of the Coalition of Civil Society Organizations, relevant MDA’s and corporate organisations under the auspices of National Peace Initiative (NPI).

The NPI was recently launched by the Anti-Corruption and Research Based Data Initiative (ARDI).

Ibrahim said the various interest groups should rather articulate the views on what they perceive as restructuring and present same to the National Assembly through their representatives who are constitutionally empowered to do so.

“To achieve this I encouraged my colleagues to make it easier for members of their constituencies to have access to them very easily to make such representative. He therefore encouraged the coalition not to relent its efforts to calm nerves of all forms of agitation going on currently in the country to ensure peace, unity and progress of the country,” Ibrahim said.

Speaking earlier the Executive Secretary of ARDI and Chairman Project Monitoring Committee of the NPI, Chief Dennis Aghanya, expressed concern on the various agitations and hate speeches across the country which is currently threatening the unity of the country and urged all stakeholders in nation building to join hand with the NPI project to save the Nigeria project from collapse.

The Deputy National Chairman of the Project Monitoring Committee of the NPI, Mallam Kabiru Sani Abdullahi, said that all the identifiable stakeholders on the objectives and the initial six-month action plan for the implementation of the project were contacted and urged Senator Ibrahim not to give up at any stage of the implementation.
