Former National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Victor Umeh, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to implement the report of the 2014 National Conference.
Umeh, who made the call on Saturday in Onitsha, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) contended that implementation of the confab report was the only basis that would guarantee Nigeria’s unity, as the problems confronting Nigeria would persist if the report was not implemented.
“We cannot continue to sustain Nigeria on injustice. We want a Nigeria that will be run on equity and fairness,” Umeh said.
“If the president wants a Nigeria where every citizen will have confidence and faith in the country, the conference report should be implemented,” he said.
He described the confab report as “an important national document which must not be wished away”.
“The far-reaching recommendations of the conference and its resolution on issues of true fiscal federalism and political restructuring should not be changed.
“We approved rotational presidency within the six geo-political zones; this, as well as true fiscal federalism will achieve harmony and confidence on the part of Nigerians,” Umeh, who was a delegate to the conference said.
