Restructuring: Jonathan Calls For Implementation of Confab Report
Former President, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, thursday at his residence in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to take a second look at the 2014 National Conference report, insisting that it holds the key to resolving several challenges currently being faced by the country.
Jonathan who spoke when Governor Seriake Dickson paid him a visit to intimate him of the work being done by the committee set up by Ijaw leaders on restructuring, said many of the current issues which fall under the purview of the committee were exhaustively treated during the 2014 National Conference which when sincerely implemented would douse tension in the polity.
He said it was a good idea that the All Progressives Congress (APC) was able to set up a committee to look into the same grey areas which featured prominently in the deliberations of the 2014 Conference.
Jonathan had in the first quarter of 2014 inaugurated the 492-member body headed by Justice Idris Kutigi, which after about four months, submitted its report on which the majority agreed on several knotty issues problems ailing the country.
Once queried on why he did not implement the report, the former president had said the time between when the report was turned in and the 2015 election was too short to do anything tangible.
