Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday gave reasons why he could not implement the report of the 2014 national conference before vacating office On May 29 20115

He also said Nigeria would have made significant progress if President Muhammadu Buhari had implemented a part of the reports of the conference.

Jonathan, who spoke at the launching and presentation of the Memoirs of Senator Femi Okurounmu at the University of Lagos titled ‘The Dream’ , said that the report was handed over to him on 21 August 2014, at a time members of the National Assembly were busy running around for re-election.

While noting the role played by Okurounmu at the conference, Jonathan, who was the chairman of the occasion, said the conference was conveyed in accordance with the yearnings of Nigerians for dialogue to reconcile ethnic differences.

He said all the issues were discussed as he gave them the freedom to discuss all and that the recommendations were far-reaching in setting an agenda for today and tomorrow.

According to the former president, the conference took out politics and that the recommendations would have taken Nigeria out of the woods. (Daily Independent)
