GOV. JONAH JANG (M) WITH MEMBERS OF PRESIDENTIAL ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON NATIONAL DIALOGUE, DURING THEIR COURTESY VISIT TO THE GOVERNOR IN JOS ON MONDAY

The Plateau State Governor, Jonah Jang, has said the findings of the National dialogue, when concluded should be implemented and not abandoned like many findings from past conferences.

Jang said this when the Presidential Advisory Committee on National Dialogue, paid him a courtesy call on Monday in Jos.

Jang lamented that Nigeria has had so many conferences whereby the results of such confabs were never implemented.

“If conferences were a successful way of running a country, we would have been the best country in the world.

“Unfortunately, once such confabs are over we push it to the archives without ever implementing them,” the News Agency of Nigeria quoted the governor as saying during the visit.

He said that national dialogue was very timely; however, the results from it “must” be implemented this time around.”

Jang appealed that, as we dialogue, Nigerians must first embrace each other and do away with their various differences.

He said the conference would help solve some of the disagreements we have.

The governor further said that for a balanced federation, the disparity in revenue sharing must be addressed so that all states could be fully developed.

The Chairman of the Committee, Sen. Femi Okurounmu, told the governor that the committee’s mission was to consult widely with the people.

He urged that people should be free to air their views to the committee. (NAN)
