IMMEDIATE past Vice- Chancellor of the University of Ilorin, Profesor Is-haq Oloyede, has described the 2014 National Conference in the country as a jamboree and ought to be meant for the dustbin. He added that there is no doubt about the fact that Nigeria desire comprehensive restructuring in a bid to move distantly away for dictatorial and authoritarianism. The don who is also a Co- Secretary at the Confab, spoke to journalists in Ilorin the Kwara State capital saying that the composition of those who participated in the conference was not good enough, adding that the confab only provided an avenue for some people to meet and enjoy “the national cake.” According to Prof. Oloyede, who was also a delegate at the national confab, some of the recommendations made were
faulty, “although a few were good.” The former Vice-Chancellor, who is also the Secretary- General of the Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, said that although the conference deliberated on some burning national issues that could benefit the generality of the people, its structure did not reflect the true interests in the country. Pointing out that the conference was meant to be a joke, Prof. Oloyede said he was not surprised that the present Federal Government recommended the report for the archives. Arguing that the unitary system of government is not sustainable in Nigeria, the don insisted that only the Federal Government is functioning and opined that it was time to restructure Nigeria to reflect the yearnings of the component states.
