I Didn’t Implement 2014 Confab Report Because Of Time Constraint – Jonathan

Speaking at the public presentation of a book written by Senator Femi Okurounmu in Lagos, Goodluck Jonathan said he failed to implement the 2014 confab report because of the time constraint as the 2015 political campaign had reached its peak.

Former President Goodluck Jonathan in his speech on Thursday, July 11, 2019, called for the implementation of the 2014 confab report which his government convened. 

Speaking at the public presentation of a book written by Senator Femi Okurounmu in Lagos, Goodluck Jonathan said he failed to implement the 2014 confab report because of the time constraint as the 2015 political campaign had reached its peak. 

The former President also maintained that the 2014 confab report can address most of the challenges facing the country, if implemented. 

“I believe the constitutional conference will solve our immediate challenges. My administration was prepared to change the narrative of our constitutional democracy with the assurance that sovereignty belongs to the people.

“However, we were time constrained. The conference was conducted one year to the end of my tenure. We did not have the time, even the National Assembly which supposed to validate the report was busy with political survival. I did not insist on rushed implementation because my administration did not set out to achieve political popularity but to genuinely advance the course of nation building” he said.
