Anglican Communion calls for implementation of 2014 Confab recommendations

www.odogwublog.com reports that the Joint Council of Provinces and Diocese East of Niger of Anglican Communion has called for immediate implementation of the recommendations of the 2014 National Conference convoked by the former president, Dr Goodluck Jonathan.

This call was part of the welcome address of the Dean Emeritus, Church of Nigeria,(Anglican Communion) and Chairman, Joint Council of Provinces East of Niger,  during a meeting which held in Nnewi, Anambra state today.

Archbishop Kattey noted that Nigeria is blessed in many significant ways with abundant human and natural resources with a lot of potential that if fully utilized and explored would make the nation an eldorado.

He pointed out that the National Conference put up by the former president made up of over four hundred prominent Nigerians drawn from every strata of the country brainstormed and came up with a report with far reaching recommendations.

The prelate said that the decisions and resolutions of the 2014 National Conference are believed to the answers to most, if not all the socio-economic, political and religious agitations and problems of the nation.

Archbishop Kattey expressed worry that the incumbent administration said it has nothing to do with recommendations like the practice of true fiscal federalism, power devolution and restructuring the system.

He pointed out that it has become imperative for the President Muhammadu Buhari's led administration to have a rethink as prominent Nigerians like the national leader of the All Progressives Congress(APC) Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu have bought into the recommendations of the 2014 conference.

"Unfortunately, however, the clarion call for true fiscal federalism, devolution of power and resources control have been resisted by the North and this is not to the best interest of our nation. But who is afraid of restructuring the nation for a stronger economic and political growth for all Nigerians and why." The Archbishop quipped.
