Confab Ends Without Controversy
Contrary to widespread speculation across the media and reports from various zones on their positions on the National Conference, the series of meetings the Confab chairman, Justice Idris Kutigi, held with zonal leaders on Wednesday paid off as the delegates agreed on a position on the controversial draft constitution.
The confab ended with a minor amendment to the third volume of the confab report by replacing the draft constitution to read “Resolutions of the conference as draft amendments to 1999 constitution.”
The amendment to the third volume was moved by Maina Waziri.
Chief Richard Akinjide moved the motion for the adoption of the confab report. The motion was seconded by Yadomah Mandara.
