Nigerian Senator, George Akume has explained the reason why the 2014 constitutional conference report cannot be used to rebuild Nigeria.
Mr. Akume, who is the Minister of Special Duties and Intergovernmental Affairs said this at a presidential stakeholders meeting in Makurdi yesterday.
Prior to this explanation, Governor Samuel Ortom had requested that the report should be used as a yardstick to fix the problems that Nigeria is dealing with currently.
“There is a need to dust the 2014 confab report to restructure every segment of the country.
“We need to restructure the current presidential system of government, all the sectors, the EFCC, the relationship among federal, state and local government areas, revenue generation and distribution.
“What is happening now is as a result of accumulated wrongs meted to people as well as issues that were left unattended by successive administrations.”
Mr. Akume in his reponse to the Governor said that the Confrence report had suffered inequality as the conference attendees from the East were more than those from the North.
“The confab report cannot be relied upon because it defies equality as the number of people who came from the East outnumbered the North.
“I was at the National Assembly then, but I did not know those who represented me. They (representatives) were merely handpicked without my knowledge.” Mr. Akume said.
