Governor of Kaduna state, Nasiru El-rufai, has said that the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) committee on true federalism would start public hearings on the matter as from September 18, 2017.
El-rufai, who is chairing the committee, disclosed this to State House correspondents after a closed door meeting with President Buhari in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
According to him, the committee had started receiving a lot of comments and memoranda, particularly from young people who had never been part of the restructuring conversation.
He said: “the APC committee on true federalism will have 13 public hearings across the country on the issue of restructuring beginning from September 18, 2017.
“By the time we listen to Nigerians and synthesize their views, we will write and make recommendations to our party how to operationalise true federalism as we have promised in our constitution,’’ the governor said
It could be recalled that El-rufai also said that as a member of the ‘Buharist group’, he has no ambition to contest for the presidency in 2019.
