A pan northern socio-political organisation, the Arewa Consultative Forum (ACF) has placed northern lawmakers on the alert over a possible presentation of a bill on restructuring to the National Assembly by those agitating for it.
TheNewsGuru.com, (TNG) recalls this is coming barely 72hours after too south south delegates met with President Muhammdu Buhari declaring that they want to control resources in their vicinity like their counterparts in the northern region.
Chairman of the Forum and former Minister of Agriculture, Chief Audu Ogbe told members of the Northern Caucus of the House of Representatives on Monday to be on the lookout for such a law in view of the statement credited to the President that if the National Assembly passed a law on restructuring, he will have no opposition to signing it.
Ogbe however said that the ACF will meet and present something to them which they should dwell on.
He said “a lot has been said about the Petroleum Industry bill, but I will not duel on that. But there is something that will come before you very soon. The last time Mr. President met with a delegation from the South, he made a statement.
“He said that if a bill is presented before the National Assembly on the question of restructuring and the Assembly passes it, he will have no objection than to sign it. It then means that the matter may not be too far away.
