Nigeria cabinet approves implementation of Confab report

Secretary to the Federal Government, Anyim Pius Anyim

Nigeria’s Federal Executive Council on Wednesday approved the final report of the National Conference as a step towards implementing its recommendations.

This was made known to journalists by the outgoing supervising Minister of Information, Edem Duke, alongside the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Pius Anyim Pius.

Mr. Anyim said the Council also approved the delegates’ modalities for implementing their resolutions or recommendations.

President Goodluck Jonathan had in September 2014, shortly after the end of the National Conference, approved the composition of a Presidential Committee to study and draw up the implementation strategy.

The Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Bello Adoke, chaired the committee while Mr. Anyim acted as the Secretary.

Other members of the committee included the Minister of Transport, Idris Umar; Minister of State for Finance, Bashir Yuguda; Minister of Aviation, Osita Chidoka; Minister of State for Federal Capital Territory Administration, Olajumoke Akinjide and Minister of Works, Mike Onolememen.

The committee’s terms of reference included studying the Report of the 2014 National Conference, articulating the recommendations therein and developing appropriate strategies for its implementation, and advising the Federal Government on all matters necessary for the effective implementation of the Report.

Mr. Anyim said the committee, after looking at the recommendations, told the President that they could be implemented.

“You would have heard the president promising severally that he is going to implement the recommendations of the conference. So, the report coming to the council today is the first leg of taking concrete steps towards implementing the recommendations and resolutions of the conference” he said.

The SGF said the implementations will be done in two phases: Recommendations which have implications on constitutional amendment or enactment of new laws, will be compiled by the attorney general who will vet them and pass them onto the National Assembly for enactment into law.

Mr. Anyim said in the second phase, recommendations that have to do with policy matters and recommendations necessary for implementation by either federal agencies or state agencies or local government areas, will be referred to the agencies for immediate implementation.

Keep ur miserable eyes off other people’s resources…In fact, if parasites like you from Oduduwa stop this your parasitism on the resources of akwa ibom people, then they will be able to pay even 1m to the jobless

    • Mosaku 147

      the fear of the “swing” southwest is the beginning of GEJ’s wisdom.

    • udemeobong

      genau, wunderbar oder!!!

  • Tj

    One of the recommendations was for members of the House of Representatives and House of Assemblies to be on part time basis. Do you think they will pass this recommendation and many others that will strip them of powers. Political gimmick of the highest order.

  • Otigba1

    Great. See the dividend of virile opposition. Electricity rate reduced by 50%. conference report speedily approved. A new Nigeria will be born soon.

  • Titi

    chairman on committed to recommend the recommendations of confab, done with his job, injury time indeed

  • Eze1

    10 days to Election!!!! Odiegwu o

  • Patrick Esheyigba

    Very humorous comments. The most sensible is that a new dawn has come in Nigeria. Thank you God. The commitee to examine the reports and recommend mode of implementation was set up as far back as September 2014. So it has been work in progress.

    • tundemash

      Please mention 2 things in this confab report.

  • Jika

    See what the fear of Elections can bring?
    (1) Boko Haram contained in six weeks after having a field day for almost six years!
    (2) Electricity tariff reduced by 50%(even though the electricity is not there)?
    (3) Fuel price reduced by Ten(10) Naira!
    (4) Confab report to be implemented!
    Thank God for elections,Nigerians now know that their Government can really do something for them if the survival of that Government is at stake.May the good lord bestow on us leaders who can lead with justice,fairness and equity every time,at all times and,not only during election times.God bless the motherland.

    • Godfrey Etokebe

      May God help us defeat BOKO HARAM permanently so that good thinking can be FOCUSED on Our Development instead of contending MADMEN!!!

  • Ajayi Ifayemi

    I thank God for APC that has put Godly fear in the hearts of our leaders. Now they know they cannot take us for granted anymore. We have alternatives. However, this Confab report sef. Has anyone really cared to take a look at it? Absolutely nothing to write home about except creation of states here and there which is of course another avenue for thief-leaders to amass more wealth at the expense of the people. Well, these leaders know our people do not like to read. So, none will read this thing before we start celebrating.

    • Philip Musa

      …and where does APC stand on the implementation of the report you may ask?

  • Mosaku 147

    The fear of the “Yoruba” request for the implementation of the so called confab report is the beginning of Jona’s wisdom. If this president was not so daft,wouldn’t he have thought this will not fly amongst the real yoruba’s. Imagine ordinary Jona trying to deceive a whole Yoruba Nation with this cheap stunt because the request for the implementation of the report came from yesterday’s elders in yorubaland. Why can’t this man and his handlers realize their game is up?

    • Uche Nnolim

      Wow!!! Is Yoruba a nation? If that is so then why are you finding faults with the President implementing the resolutions of the Confab? You want to be recognized as a nation and yet you want to stop others from recognizing theirs… What a hypocrite!!!

  • segun

    I think President Jonathan should form another committee to examine the approval of the Nigerian Cabinet. After that he should form another committee to examine the recommendation of this committee! Yeye dey smell for yeye people-Jonathan has become so desperate because of election.

  • Dankasa

    Is a real STUNT! because nobody will buy into this nonsense. He tried to buy Yorubas with Dollars and it failed, he tried to lure their youth into fake jobs creations, it failed and resorted to violence through OPC riots in Lagos and the thing failed with serious fracas among and within the militia group itself in-spite the move was stage-managed by a whole Doctor (Fasehun) who led the gangsters on rampage. So now Jonah Nollywood script tells him to implement the so-called Confab report as the next and surely the final Episode of the Villawood FINAL Season of Umbulale Movie. If you like direct Madam Okonjo to start to implement a $100,000 as social security for every Nigerian, you are losing this election, period!

    • Nubianlady

      March 28 will tell!

  • Uzoma John

    All politics. Jonathan has no intention of implementing any report. There are a thousand and one reports gathering dust in the archives. Jonathan wants to reduce darkness tariff, Jonathan wants to implement car loan scheme, Jonathan wants to secure a loan for 2nd Niger bridge, Jonathan compensates relations of Immigration job calamity (without refunding over =N=1billion collected from job seekers), Jonathan wants to defeat BH (if not for the multinational force). Jona wants to do everything a week to election. This is the the level of desperation driving this President. I thought he said he has achieved everything he set out to achieve before now, which no one can see. Why suddenly he now wants to do everything a week to the election. He who have ears let him hear. Jonathan is playing 419 with Nigerians. A desperate person can promise anything to have his way.

  • Bunduma Mohammed

    Desperate clueless president want to deceived his people

    • Nubianlady

      You call implementing the confab report a deceit? Am not surprised because no matter how good a saint is, haters must find a fault!

  • Nubianlady

    President Goodluck Jonathan had in September 2014, shortly after the end of the National Conference, approved the composition of a Presidential Committee to study and draw up the implementation strategy.
    The President approved the recommendations six months ago and asked the committee to draw up the strategy! All these did not just happen in a week! For the first time in this country, a committee report will be enacted and implemented! This is a good sign that we are getting there with GEJ!

  • richkid

    Apc and buhari especially northerners are just trying to boycutt the agreement but our president who is gentle and steady has continued to win them in all aspect. GEJ all the way civilised man
