Restructuring: APC’s NWC wants panel report implemented before 2019 polls

The National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress has commenced deliberations on the report of the Governor Nasir el-Rufai-led panel on True Federalism.

The PUNCH gathered that the party decided that it would advise President Muhammadu Buhari to implement aspects of the report that would not require constitution amendments.

It was learnt that the APC would urge the Federal Government to direct the Revenue Mobilisation, Allocation and Fiscal Commission to fashion out a new revenue allocation formula before the 2019 elections.

It was gathered that the deliberations featured prominently at an executive session of the NWC which was held at the private residence of the APC National Chairman, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, in Abuja, on Monday.
