Emir of Ilorin seeks Con­fab re­port im­ple­men­ta­tion

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Romoke W. Ah­mad, Ilorin

The Emir of Ilorin, Dr Ibrahim Sulu Gam­bari yesterday called on the Na­tional Assem­bly to come up with a bill that will en­sure im­ple­men­ta­tion of the na­tional con­fer­ence re­port.

The emir made the call while re­ceiv­ing mem­bers of the Kwara State cor­re­spon­dent chapel of the Nige­ria Union of Jour­nal­ists (NUJ).

Sulu-Gam­bari, who par­tic­i­pated in the ex­er­cise, noted that the fo­rum came up with far reach­ing rec­om­men­da­tions which ‘‘could guide Nige­ria at this stage of her restruc­tur­ing”.

He said though the con­fab was a fact find­ing one, there was need for the Na­tional Assem­bly to look at its rec­om­men­da­tions and adopt those that could foster peace, unity and en­hance de­vel­op­ment of the na­tion.

“I be­lieve it should not be thrown into the dust bin just like Pro­fes­sor Gam­bari has said. Nige­ria needs restruc­tur­ing and the media has im­por­tant roles to play in help­ing the coun­try to re­alise the dreams of its found­ing fathers. Nige­ria will not dis­in­te­grate’’, he said.

He cau­tioned jour­nal­ists against sto­ries that could tar­nish the im­age of the coun­try or de­stroy its foun­da­tion.

“You should con­tinue to pro­mote peace and har­mony, not war. You should be able to tai­lor the coun­try to­wards the right di­rec­tion,” he said.
