From the ashes of the National Conference has risen a new pressure group known as National Consensus Initiative (NCI). The new group emerged out of the 494 delegates whose assignment ended today with the submission of the National Conference Report to President Goodluck Jonathan. The National Conference was inaugurated on March 17.

NCI, which was inaugurated today in Abuja, is already talking tough and has vowed to ensure that the report of the Confab is faithfully implemented.

Ondo State Commissioner for Vocational and Tertiary Education, Remi Olatubora, has been elected Interim Coordinator of NCI.

Olatubora, who led Ondo State delegates to the Confab, told newsmen that the group would work together as advocacy group towards ensuring that “decisions of the conference are not left in the shelf to gather dust in the manner in which the reports of earlier conferences were treated.”

He explained that the desire to come together in a group was informed by common desire of most the delegates that all relevant governmental organs and agencies implement the decisions of the conference.    

Olatubora said the mission of the group was to engage with issues flowing from the confab, as independent input into the process of consolidating the gains of Nigeria’s centenary, and it's reconstruction into a responsible, accountable, and egalitarian society. 

Other reasons according to him was “to campaign vigorously for gender mainstreaming and inter-generational justice as dedicated by the requirement of 21 century politics.

“To develop a framework for the emergence of an alumni of the confab as the broadest convergence of Pan-Nigerian constituent group.

“To act as a connecting rod between our group and the primary as well as secondary stakeholders in the political sustainability of Nigeria project.”
