The recommendations in the report submitted by the National Conference following months of deliberations will be fully implemented, President Goodluck Jonathan has promised.
“Every promise I make, God willing, I will see to its fulfilment. I assure you, we shall implement the report,” said Jonathan in his independence day broadcast on Wednesday.
“We have successfully delivered on that promise as we established the 2014 National Conference headed by Justice Legbo Kutigi. After months of deliberations, which did not come without its challenges, the conference concluded its assignment and has handed its Report to me.
The president has already shown commitment to implementing the report by setting up a Ministerial Committee saddled with the responsibility of working out the modalities for implementing the Report. The committee is headed by Attorney General of the Federation, Mohammed Bello Adoke.
“One major lesson which the 2014 National Conference has taught us as a country is that, a multi-ethnic country like ours, must learn to embrace painstaking dialogue until consensus is established,” Jonathan added.
