Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue, Senator Femi Okurounmu on Friday said that the proposed national dialogue by President Goodluck Jonathan is for the good of all Nigerians.
He stated this in Calabar, Cross River State, when he led members of the 13-man committee to pay a courtesy call on Dr Thomas Ika Ika Oqua, the Ndidem of the Quas.
He said that the advisory committee for the national dialogue conference was set up to hear the people’s agitations and come up with an agenda for the national dialogue.
“The government does not want to impose anything on the people that is why the committee is set up to hear the views of Nigerians”, he said.
In a welcome address, Oqua pledged his support for the national dialogue just as he enjoined Nigerians to do the same, saying that it would foster national unity, while enhancing the country’s development.
The Ndidem of the Quas admonished the team to hear the people’s agitations and take them into consideration.
He also commended President Jonathan for initiating the national dialogue to hear the views of all Nigerians on nation-building issues.
