President Goodluck Jonathan on Thursday thumped his chest for organising a successful national dialogue, saying he meant well for the country and promised to implement the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference, which officially closed Thursday.
The president made the pledge Thursday at the National Judicial Institute, NJI, during the closing ceremony of the conference, where he also received the 21-volume report from the conference chairman, Idris Kutigi.
Mr. Jonathan also said the successful conclusion of the conference have proved cynics, who never gave the conference a chance, wrong.
He said some of the recommendations of the conference will be considered by the National Council of State, while the remaining ones will be sent to the National Assembly, the President said while formally receiving the 10,000 pages, conference report, with 600 resolutions.
Jonathan, however, took a swipe on the conference detractors, whom he described as prophet of doom who have been put to shame.
He also pledged that the report would be considered by the council of State before it’s passed to the National Assembly.
