Politics: Nigeria would have progressed if Buhari had implemented 2014 Confab report — Jonathan



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 2015. He also said Nigeria would have made significant progress if President Muhammadu Buhari had implemented a part of the reports of the conference.

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)
