Immediate past president, Goodluck Jonathan has opined that Nigeria’s many challenges would be surmounted if it could use some of the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference.
Recall that Jonathan inaugurated the conference on March 17, 2014, while he was in power.
According to him, the conference ‘was still the best conference Nigeria ever had as a nation.’
Jonathan, made this statement while speaking as a guest of honour at the 60th birthday celebration of constitutional lawyer and activist, Mike Ozekhome in Abuja.
He said the recommendations generated by the conference were keys the government could use in navigating some of its challenges of nationhood.
“At least reading the book will show Nigerians the truth: whether the conference was manipulated or not.
“As far as I am concerned, the 2014 National Conference was the best conference Nigerians had,” Jonathan said while launching the book.
He also described the celebrant as dogged and impressive Nigerian who had contributed his quota to nation building.
Others, who attended the event include Mr. Jonathan’s wife, Patience, a former Senate President, Ken Nnamani; ex-Secretary to the State Government, Pius Anyim; former head of the civil service, Stephen Oronsaye; senator representing Kaduna central, Shehu Sani; DAAR Communication boss, Raymond Dokpesi, and a host of others.
