Nigeria’s former Minister of Information, Dora Akunyili, has praised of President Goodluck Jonathan’s courage to convene the on-going National Conference in the country’s capital city, Abuja.
She expressed her opinion during an appraisal of the President’s inaugural speech, describing the National Conference as Jonathan’s most courageous act.
According to her, “Nigerians have for long clamoured for this National Conference. I regard this National Conference as President Jonathan’s best Centenary gift to Nigeria; it is a testimony of the fact that he is a listening President.”
Organised by the present government, the National Conference was convened to serve as a forum for discussing and resolving Nigeria’s constitutional and socio-political challenges.
The conference has faced many challenges including an on-going legal fireworks instituted by former Nigeria’s President Olusegun Obasanjo and now resolved debate on voting pattern by the delegates.
