GEJ calls for the implementation of 2014 confab report

Former president Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, GEJ, has called for the implementation of the 2014 Confab report which his administration convened.

GEJ made this known while delivering a speech at the book launch of Senator Femi Okurounmu in Lagos on Thursday.

According to GEJ, his administration couldn’t implement the report because of the 2015 general elections which was already closeby.

He revealed that the confab report, if implemented, will address most of the challenges bedevilling the country.

“I believe the constitutional conference will solve our immediate challenges. My administration was prepared to change the narrative of our constitutional democracy with the assurance that sovereignty belongs to the people.

“However, we were time constrained. The conference was conducted one year to the end of my tenure. We did not have the time, even the National Assembly which supposed to validate the report was busy with political survival. I did not insist on rushed implementation because my administration did not set out to achieve political popularity but to genuinely advance the course of nation building” he said.
