Re­duce c’ttees to four - Ag­bakoba

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Fran­cis Okeke

A del­e­gate rep­re­sent­ing civil so­ci­ety or­gan­i­sa­tion Olisa Ag­bakoba yes­ter­day said 20 com­mit­tees are “un­wieldy” for the Na­tional Con­fer­ence, de­scrib­ing some of the com­mit­tees as ir­rel­e­vant.

Ag­bakoba wants fel­low del­e­gates to con­cen­trate on dis­cussing Nigeria’s “fu­ture,” type of con­sti­tu­tion and the sys­tem that can “drive” Nigeria for­ward.

“I am here my lord to dis­cuss Nigeria’s fu­ture; what type of con­sti­tu­tion are we look­ing for? What type of sys­tem can drive Nigeria for­ward?

“My lord, you may find that maybe four com­mit­tees are rel­e­vant and in that con­text, we then have more time re­ally get into dis­cus­sions. But I don’t think we need more than four com­mit­tees dis­cuss these mat­ters.”

How­ever, many del­e­gates dis­agreed with Ag­bakoba, say­ing that all is­sues be­ing han­dled by the 20 com­mit­tees are im­por­tant and should be ad­dressed by the con­fer­ence.
