The national vice chairman of APC for South-South, Ntufam Hilliard Eta has joined his voice to the ongoing agitation for restructuring and resources control.

He said the call was strong and very necessary but that the party has a view towards it which reason it has inaugurated a committee to tour parts of the country to collate views.

He said the party has also considered the issue of devolution of power, which reason also the committee will have to harness the different views, positions and reasoning on the topic of restructuring.

Eta was answering questions from journalists in Calabar on the matter when he said, "I believe in it. I believe that restructuring will bring to the country greater benefits and development. States should be allowed to control their resources, manage their affairs and then pay small percentage to the federal government.

" The party is agreed on issues of fiscal federalism, devolution of power and restructuring but many have their different views and positions on these. This is why we have set up a committee that will visit states and see how the country can sit down and talk about all these issues", he said.
