The leadership of the National Consultative Front, NCFront, has announced May 1, 2021 as the commencement date for what it calls the People’s Constitutional Conference for Nigeria.
The conference, according to the group, is initiated by leaders of conscience to prevent civil war and anarchy in the country.
According to a statement issued Thursday evening signed by its Head, Public Affairs Bureau, Dr. Tanko Yunusa, and made available to News Express, the conference coordinating team is to be anchored by Dr Olisa Agbakoba SAN, Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed, Dr Mrs Tokunbo Awolowo Dosunmu and Dr Obadiah Mailafia, among others.
While calling on Nigerians to shun the ongoing revalidation exercise by members of the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC), NCFront also commend Northern governors and the Nigeria Senate for adopting its position on cattle ranching over grazing as a measure to douse the heightening ethnic strife and violence in the country.
It will be recalled that the NCFront on Tuesday, February 2, 2021, called on the various levels of government in the country to immediately adopt cattle ranching instead of cattle grazing, and to flush out criminal elements from Nigeria's forest, including Sambisa, in order to put an end to the growing insecurity and ethnic violence in the country.
The statement reads as follows:
“The leadership of the NCFront wishes to reaffirm that if this step adopted by the Northern governors and the Nigerian Senate, is well implemented in good time, it will reduce farmers-herders clashes and also expose criminal and unauthorized elements, whether alien or local, using our bushes and forests to wreak havoc on innocent and unsuspecting citizens of Nigeria.
“In the same vein, we wish to announce 1st of May, 2021 as the commencement date of the independent People's Constitutional Conference for Nigeria initiated by Leaders of Conscience to prevent civil war and anarchy in Nigeria. The conference coordinating team is to be anchored by Dr Olisa Agbakoba, SAN, Dr Hakeem Baba Ahmed, Dr Mrs Tokunbo Awolowo Dosunmu, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, among others.
“Registration and accreditation for this vintage national conference of ethnic nationalities, indigenous peoples as well as civil society and professional groups in Nigeria has been scheduled to open on 31st March, 2021 at the NCFront secretariat in Abuja to be supervised by Rt Hon Ghali Umar Na’abba, Prof Pat Utomi and Che Olawale Okunniyi.
“Finally, the NCFront also wishes to call on citizens of conscience in Nigeria to keep faith and be more focused on the constitutional restructuring panacea of the Leaders of Conscience in Nigeria and to shun the ongoing distractive and diversionary membership registration of the failed party in government, the All Progressive Congress, APC, which will soon be flushed out of power by the emerging revolutionary mega political movement of the Leaders of Conscience to be launched by next month by the NCFront,” said the statement.
