Implement Recommendations Of 2014 National Conference, Jonathan Tells Buhari
Former President Goodluck Jonathan has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to implement the recommendations of the 2014 national conference.
Speaking on Thursday at the book presentation of Senator Femi Okurounmu he chaired at the University of Lagos, the former President believes that the nation’s major challenges can be addressed effectively if the report of the conference is executed.
Jonathan said his administration would have implemented the report of the confab but due to political and timing issues it was impossible for him
He also warned that for the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to be credible in conducting elections, top officials of the agency must not be appointed by politicians.
Jonathan, who said that the full implementation of the report would require an amendment of parts of the 1999 Constitution, however, warned that it was not a thing to be rushed.
He also said democracy was key to achieving the dreams of the people, noting that the electoral process should be credible.
