The People Democratic Party’s Governors Forum has backed the call by the 24-member Progressives Governors Forum for the urgent restructuring of the country to stop ongoing agitations in some parts of the nation.

The Chairman, PDP Governors Forum, who is also the Ekiti State Governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose, while speaking to newsmen in Ado-Ektit said his colleagues in  the national leadership of the Ahmed Makarfi-led faction of the PDP, were on the same page with the APC governors on the need to restructure the country.

The governor said the move was because the present structure lacked the provisions that could enhance national integration, cohesion and prosperity needed to create an egalitarian society where social justice, fairness, equity and equality could thrive.

It would be recalled that the APC governors had, last Thursday, called for reforms to Nigeria’s federal structure as a means of dousing growing ethnic-based tensions in the country.
