Buhari, APC deceived Nigerians with restructuring in 2015- Atiku 

The Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has accused the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) of deceiving Nigerians in 2015 by promising to restructure the country which they didn’t till date.
Atiku stated this while interacting  with the leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Tuesday in Abuja.
The former Vice President said he wrote a book on his thoughts which conforms with the proposal CAN presented to him, and he still stand by those objectives in the book.
He, however, said that there is a difference between the government that ran the country from 1999 to 2015 and the government running the country from 2015 till date.
“You must realise that there is a difference between the government that ran this country from 1999 to 2015 and the government that has been running this country from 2015 till date.
“One example I want to give you, they said they need restructuring, did they restructure? So they told Nigerians what they wanted to hear and did a different thing when they got the opportunity. PDP is not like that.
“I stand before you here not to campaign but to tell you the honest truth, what you have presented to us is what I have always believed in, and if I have the opportunity, I swear to God, I will do it.
“The fundamental front lines that we have seen in the last 7 to 8 years only occurred because you wanted change in 2015, and you elected the change you are seeing and experiencing now”, he said.
He further stated that “the CAN document is totally in conformity with thoughts in a book which I published even when I was a vice President and I had a fundamental disagreement with my President on that book and the policies it advocates on that book.

“Not only did my President and I had problems, I also had problems with my own constituency where I come from, but because it is something that I believed in, I still stand by those objectives in that book.
He said to tackle insecurity, he will increase the size of the police force, train and equip them.
“We cannot have state police without having a constitutional amendment, so we will go into constitution amendment where we will have different levels of police. These are our plans to tackle the security challenges facing the country.
“For sure we need a judicial amendment, first of all, there is poor wages for Judges, very poor working conditions. Again, the judiciary has levels, federal judiciary, state, but we will attempt as much as possible to have a judicial reform where we will improve dispensation of justice and also the welfare of Judges.
