Governor of Adamawa State, Murtala Nyako yesterday, asked President Goodluck Jonathan to forget about the proposed national conference and pay more attention to delivering the dividends of democracy to Nigerians.

Nyako described the planned confab as a waste of time and scarce resources, which ordinarily should have been used to provide social amenities.

According to the governor, Nigerians need concrete development projects that could enhance their life expectancy and not talk shops that add no real value to life.

Nyako’s criticism of the planned national dialogue comes on the heels of the Ebonyi State governor, Martin Elechi’s opposition to the talks which he said was a huge joke, waste of time and distraction to the president.

Nyako said: “Governor Elechi is absolutely right. What we need now is a development programme and not national conference or dialogue.

“We need critical infrastructure; we need ports and railway system, functional and compulsory education for Nigerians and not talk shops that cannot take us to anywhere.

“We need primary schools that can be described as the best in the world. We do not need too much grammar about developing Nigeria, but concrete efforts and the political will by the government to translate talks into reality for the overall benefit of Nigerians”.

  1. Nyako you must be dreaming. In case you don’t know, after 12 midnight there will be no more Nigeria. So whether you like it or not national confab will hold immediately after the yuletide. Your cult of “born to rule” will continue to rule boko haram.

  2. Nyako, are you aware of the realities on ground at all. Nigerians needs to agree on the basis of their co-existence! Developments apart. We have lived together for 100yrs. There is need to re examine our relationship. Has it been worth the while? If yes how do we forge ahead. If no, what are the new options. We are now in a dynamic world. The age where the uneducated leads the educated majority is over. This is a new dispensation. A computer age where nations crave for recognition in terms of outstanding achievements in uplifting the standard of living of its citizenry and the World at large as against the parochial attitude of embezzling the nations funds to the detriment of the larger majority.
