NADECO charges Buhari on confab report

CHAIRMAN, National Democratic Coalition (NADECO), Admiral Ndubuisi Kanu (rtd) has called on the incoming administration of Muhammadu Buhari, to implement the outcome of the 2014 National Conference and not jettison it.

In his address during a press conference yesterday, Kanu, who spoke on behalf of NADECO said, “NADECO hereby calls upon the out-going government, if it has not already done so; to compile a special hand-over note of the 2014 Confab Report as it embraces Devolution (indeed return) of Powers, True Federalism, Resource Control and Equity of States in the six zones, as a start, and as already endorsed by the Federal Executive Council, for presentation to the President-elect and the National Assembly.

“We urge the in-coming government to send a Bill to the National Assembly, for the implementation of same, as a matter of urgency and dedicated address of the national question as the only way to attend to and check the fissiparous and divergent influences now on.”

The NADECO chairman also said that all the signs remain that nothing is going to change for the better and that elections are neither our problem nor solution.

According to him, “Except that there is a President-elect in-waiting and the polity is agog with the euphoria of ‘Change’, all the signs remain that nothing is going to change for the better, no matter how Ostrich we get.

“The only difference this time is the seeming oddity that it has been reportedly said that, since the election was ethically sided, even though the President-elect won the election, he lacks the mandate to govern; an observation which undoubtedly drives our point home that ‘elections are neither our problem nor solution’.”

He insisted there would be no respite in the horizon until ethnic nationalities, who insist upon true federalism as the only panacea and solution to the Nigerian National Question are allowed to exercise their primordial God-given inalienable rights.

Said he, “We are again, however boring it may sound, duty bound to repeat, that there is no respite in the horizon for this polity; unless we do the needful, because, election after election, this entity called Nigeria deceives no one else but itself, believing it can move itself forward towards nationhood by distilling measures oblivious of the existence of the Ethical Nationalities and their primordial God-given inalienable rights, who insist upon federalism as the only panacea and solution to the Nigerian National Question.”

He added that it is fool-hardy to pretend that the ethnic nationalities who own the land mass called Nigeria, who insist that their wishes must form the fulcrum of governance in a country that has confiscated their sovereign rights, their lands and their resources without a say in how they are governed, can be treated with measure of ignominy that Nigeria metes out to them in its preference to grope within the dark abyss of unitarism.

    Power mongers prefer the status quo as the present constitution enables their greed to yield abundant fruit.
    This amendment will enable us shed corruption drastically.

    WHICH NADECO? WE ONLY RECOGNIZE NADECO OF 1993-1998 WITH TINUBU AS THE BRAIN BEHIND ITS EFFECTIVENESS THEN. NADECO IS DEAD SINCE 1999 TILL DATE AND SO IT SHALL REMAIN. THE PICTURES I SAW ON THE TV THIS WEEK ARE THE FACES OF JONATHAN SYMPATHIZERS. AFTER COLLECTING LARGE SUMS OF MONEY AND SUPPORTED A FAKE CONFAB UNDER JONATHAN, AND NOW THAT THEIR PAY MASTER HAS LOST THE ELECTIONS, THEY ARE NOW SPEAKING RUBBISH AND LOOKING FOR ATTENTION UNDER THE NEW DISPENSATION. NIGERIANS ARE WISER. SHAMELESS NEW NADECO GANGSTERS. WE KNOW THE REAL NADECO FAITHFULS NOT THESE NEW ONES THAT HAVE NO INTEGRITY.

      Your attention is more on the persons than on the message and how relevant it is to the change we all desire.
      My take is that the report should be implemented. We start from there , at least, after all the time and resources spent on it.
      Ammendments must continue untill we get to a near perfect constitution. This is the trend foever.
      After all, we have seen this development in the practice of our democracy itself;coming from a period when underage and exconvicts littered the space to a saner environment now, eventhough we still have lots of cleansing to do here.
