President Muhammadu Buhari has been advised not to bow to pressure from those opposed to the implementation of the National Conference, CONFAB report.
The Anglican Bishop of Calabar, Bishop Tunde Adeleye, who gave the advice during a chat with journalists in Calabar, at the weekend, said that dumping the report would be a great disservice to the nation.
According to him, ‘the President should look at the report and implement recommendations that are in the interest of the nation, while aspects that are inimical to the unity of the country should be dumped.’
Bishop Adeleye noted that most of the recommendations of the CONFAB were capable of solving some of the nagging problems the nation was facing.
On insecurity, he commended President Buhari for taking practical steps in the fight against insurgency, adding that he has succeeded in extracting commitment from African countries and the international community.
He disclosed that most countries that were hitherto not willing to assist Nigeria in the battle against insurgency have now pledged to assist the country.
Bishop Adeleye called on the federal government to as a matter of urgency, address the issue of unemployment, power and health to give Nigerians a new lease of life.
