The pledge was made by Atiku at an interactive session with members of the Nigerian Guild of Editors in Lagos on Wednesday.

“Let me therefore take advantage of today’s gathering of Nigerian media gatekeepers to state unequivocally that my restructuring agenda is intact and will be implemented from my first day in office.”

“Already, I have received a report from a team of constitutional law experts that I assembled to look into our constitution and highlight areas where there are items that can be moved to the concurrent and residual lists of the constitution.

“Let me assure you that if I am elected president next year, I will begin working on the implementation of that report on my very first day in office.”
