Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Nu­rud­deen M. Ab­dal­lah

A Benue state del­e­gate Dr. Mag­da­lene Mba Dura has sub­mit­ted mem­o­randa on com­mu­nal clashes, se­cu­rity, and de­vo­lu­tion of power to the sec­re­tariat of the Na­tional Con­fer­ence.

Dura said the the­matic pa­pers in­clude “Com­mu­nal clashes, boundary ad­just­ments and state cre­ation: is­sues and prospects,” “Com­mu­nal crises and the quest for state cre­ation in Nigeria: the ex­pe­ri­ence of the Benue people” and “po­lit­i­cal re­struc­tur­ing of forms of govern­ment.”

Oth­ers are “Nigeria na­tional se­cu­rity chal­lenges: a crit­i­cal as­sess­ment,” “De­vo­lu­tion of power for more ef­fec­tive Nigeria,” Nigeria en­ergy needs: ex­plor­ing Nigeria’s re­new­able en­ergy sources and call for re­new­able en­ergy tech­nol­ogy de­vel­op­ment in Nigeria.”

She said Nige­ri­ans must vote for com­pe­tent and ca­pa­ble lead­ers, not char­la­tans, say­ing “the most im­por­tant thing for Nige­ri­ans is to be able to dis­cern who re­ally rep­re­sents what their as­pi­ra­tions are.”
